Negative Reviews


Can Get a Bit Noisy.

If your room faces the inn's court, you may find yourself in search of a pair of earplugs. This hotel hosts a lot of wedding receptions, and so noise from the parties can last well into the night. Try requesting a room away from this area.


Facility Closures.

Guests say leisure facilities such as the pool have been closed, and with no prior communication from the hotel prior to arrival. These closures are presumably due to ongoing renovations, but guests say it would be nice if this was communicated.


Parking Issues.

Guests say this hotel can be a bit tricky to find, as it needs better signage for the entrance. Not only that, but parking can be an issue as there is no entrance to hotel from the rear, and the car park offers just a limited number of spaces.
