Negative Reviews

Some of the rooms need refurbishing

This hotel is a historic, older property, so it’s important to keep that in mind when booking a reservation here Some of the rooms seem slightly dated and do not match the rest of the hotel in terms of luxury and style Mould and other cleanliness issues have been noted in the bathrooms from time to time.

Air conditioning issues in rooms

The temperature can vary from room to room, which may disturb your comfort A quick call to the front desk should be able to assist with any room climate issues.

Restaurant prices are high

You can expect to pay a pretty penny for your meals if you eat at the hotel’s restaurants Meals, as well as the cost of cocktails are considerably high, so you may want to seek eateries outside of the hotel if you’re looking to stay on budget.
