Positive Reviews

Perfectly cooked dishes start your day right

Tender sausages, perfectly cooked egg benedicts, tasty bacon, fresh fruit juices, and overflowing coffee & tea were just some of the food and drinks offered that most guests loved. In addition, you and your kids will surely like the colourful and creative presentation of the desserts and main courses.

Genuinely warm service is guaranteed!

One of the things that stand out in this guesthouse according to many guests is definitely the friendly and efficient service of the staff. Furthermore, guests noted that the manager personally check how they are doing, and is always willing to listen to their concerns so solutions can be formulated right away.

Well-appointed and spacious bathrooms

A lot of guests are highly pleased because the bathrooms are enormous and spotlessly clean. They did not find any moulds on the showers or strands of hair on floors. Moreover, the water pressure is strong and stable, and the toiletries have excellent qualities.

Negative Reviews

Poor soundproofing allows noise to enter

Guests were disappointed because the walls of the rooms were not that thick. Thus, they heard sounds from the nearby rooms. In addition, they were also able to hear loud music from the pub.

Weak Internet connection and poor phone signals

Some guests have difficulties in making outgoing phone calls because of poor signals. The wireless Internet signal is also not reliable at the rooms. However, it works fine in the common areas.

Faulty heating system may cause inconvenience

The heaters do not work properly at times, so guests who stayed at this property during winter are discouraged. The staffs, though, are alert in responding to this kind of problem especially during the cold season.
