Negative Reviews

Shower difficult to control

Some guests have noted some displeasure with the bathroom setup at the bed-and-breakfast A few felt the shower specifically was difficult to control, and that the range from hot to cold water was difficult to anticipate and adapt to.

Small lift and troublesome stairs

The lift at the hotel is not large This aspect is complicated by the fact that there is a large, rather steep flight of stairs greeting guests upon their arrival Such a setup may prove worrisome to the elderly and disabled, so please bear this in mind as you consider booking.

Basic breakfast

While the quality of the food and its preparation isn’t exactly in question by guests to McLays, a number did express some dissatisfaction with the fact that there is no cooked-to-order breakfast offered and that the cook staff wasn’t flexible You’re stuck with whatever they give you on your plate in the morning if you opt into the hotel breakfast.
