Negative Reviews

Rooms not always up to scratch

The rooms at the hotel are on the receiving end of fairly mixed feedback from guests, suggesting that some of the rooms are of a better standard than others. Guests are particularly disappointed to end up in one of the rooms without windows. Plus, complaints of lingering smoke smells and other unpleasant odours are fairly common.

Insufficient parking

Guests report that the hotel has insufficient parking. Those travelling with their own vehicle may well find themselves struggling to find a space at all.
