Negative Reviews

Rooms in the annexe don’t seem as nice

Those guests who found themselves in an annexe room don’t seem to be as impressed as those who stayed in the main hotel, even though the annexe rooms are more modern It appears that the walls in this part of the hotel are particularly thin, so you can expect to hear some noise from adjacent rooms.

Some disappointment at the bar

While some guests were more than happy with the selection of drinks available at the bar, others bemoaned the lack of real ales Furthermore, several reviews indicate that guests experienced slow service.

Issues accessing the Internet are possible

Although Wi-Fi is offered as a free amenity at this hotel, you might have trouble accessing the service Not all guests have a problem, but some say they struggled to connect and when they did, they found the connection was slow and frustrating.
