Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi connection is slow and unreliable.

The Wi-Fi connection is not the best at this property. It seems that certain areas of the hotel get better reception than others, including certain rooms. If you rely on a steady internet connection, you may wish to seek another hotel.

Temperature can run warm in rooms.

Rooms can get toasty from time to time, so if you’re sensitive to heat, take note. Be prepared to open a window to cool your room down, but when doing so, you might also let in some noise from the road.

Pricey for the value.

For a small, independently owned guest house, you can expect to pay a pricey room rate. Some feel that the overall value is missing here, but you may find that its charms and low-key elegance are worth it.
