Negative Reviews


Noise May Be a Problem

Guests say to be prepared for a good amount of noise if you are in a front-facing room. There is quite a bit of traffic noise, as well as a very active pub across the street. Noise within the hotel in general also travels, as you can hear footsteps above you and doors opening and closing.


Guests with Mobility Issues Take Heed

This hotel has quite a few stairs to navigate over three separate floors, and there is no lift onsite, so it may be a problem to navigate your way around, especially if someone in your party has mobility issues.


Lack of Air Conditioning Leads to Restlessness

Rooms do not have air conditioning. This can make it very hard to get a good night's rest, especially during hot spells. If you are in a room that faces the road with traffic noise, you won't want to open your window for the air flow.
