Negative Reviews

Disappointing room quality

Guests haven’t been overly impressed with the room quality here, typically describing the accommodation as offering quite cramped and sometimes poorly ventilated conditions. The views from the so-called deluxe rooms also come in for criticism although they are marginally better than the rooms in the basement.

Amenities can disappoint

The lack of parking for those guests who brought their own car proved to be frustrating, as guests found that public facilities were hard to come by. Guests also express discontent with the speed and reliability of the Wi-Fi.

Mixed feedback about on-site dining

Although guests have generally been satisfied with the quality of food served in the restaurant, the cost of dining has proved prohibitive at times and certainly not in keeping with the budget-friendly room rates.
