Clean and tidy rooms
Based on the general sentiments of past visitors, the hygiene standards of the accommodation's rooms were at a high level. From the bathrooms to the beds, all areas of the rooms have frequently been seen as well-maintained and clean.
Breakfast good value for money
When it came to the price charged for the hotel's buffet breakfast, previous guests have usually praised the value for money offered. Furthermore, the quality and variety of the breakfast was commended in the majority of cases.
Service a mixed bag
In terms of directly interacting with the staff members, this aspect of the accommodation has received a mixed reception from past visitors. It has been occasionally claimed that the service was somewhat unhelpful and not welcoming, and the availability of front desk personnel was also questioned at times.
Substandard Wi-Fi service
Although offered free of charge, the quality of the Wi-Fi was routinely lambasted by previous guests that used the service during their time at the hotel. The wireless Internet was often said to be intermittent with slow download speeds.
Rooms far from the best
With reportedly limited space, amenities and no en-suite bathrooms in select cases, the accommodation's rooms have not been seen in the best light overall by former visitors. In particular, the room soundproofing was lambasted, with it considered ineffective in blocking out the noise of others moving around the property.
