No cooked breakfast served

At present, the accommodation does not serve a cooked breakfast option. As well as this aspect being criticised, the continental breakfast provided has received mixed feedback in terms of variety and taste quality.

Lack of a lift

The omission of no lift has been problematic at times for previous guests that stayed at the hotel. This was particularly an inconvenience for those staying on the third and fourth floors of the property.

Bathroom issues

The bathroom facilities at the accommodation have been a source of negativity for numerous former visitors. Along with the bathroom being located on a separate floor for those that don't contain an en-suite, the water pressure/temperature has also been criticised on occasion.
