Negative Reviews


Service not the most efficient

Although the accommodation's staff members were often regarded as friendly in their conduct, the efficiency of the service has been lambasted by a sizeable amount of past visitors. In particular, the service at breakfast was described as overly slow at times.


Unreliable Wi-Fi connection

When it came to those that wanted to use it, the hotel's Wi-Fi has proven to be a source of criticism on occasion. Previous guests have noted that the Wi-Fi was unreliable, while its range was also considered insufficient in covering all of the rooms.


Limited facilities supplied

With no on-site parking, lift and limited amenities throughout, the accommodation is noticeably basic when compared to other choices - something that has disappointed numerous former visitors. Furthermore, it has also helped support the overall opinion that staying at the property was somewhat expensive.
