Breakfast worth it
The Berkley Dining Room, one of the hotel's on-site restaurants, hosts a breakfast buffet each morning. Guests state that the breakfast buffet is quite nice and has a decent number of items available for you to choose from.
Space all around
The entire property is spacious according to travellers who add that the rooms are large and quite comfortable. In addition to this, the lobby and common areas of the hotel are rather big as well and ensuring you never feel confined.
Problems at the front desk
The front desk staff at the hotel can be a source of frustration and several travellers claim that some of the employees seem disorganised and unsure of what is going on. This can lead to slow service and long waits to check-in or check-out.
Decor not so ritzy
Despite being a relatively new property, a few visitors say the decor in the rooms and the common areas looks rather aged and the hotel just feels a little dated overall.
Wi-Fi takes its time
Using the internet at hotel can be difficult. A couple of guests explain that the Internet speed is a little on the slow side and connecting to the Wi-Fi signal from some of the rooms is also problematic on occasion.
