Reasonable room rates

Negative Reviews

Property could be cleaner

Guests haven't always found this property as clean as it should be. Reported problems include thick dust, stained carpets, and damp smells. Not all guests have felt disappointed but enough have to make you think that a deep clean could be in order.

Dated appearance

In addition to a lack of deep cleaning, it also appears that the property hasn't seen any updates for a while. As a result, you may find that the overall appearance of the property is rather dated with some rather glaring maintenance issues.

Some difficulties with essentials

Guests mention that they found the Wi-Fi here slow, if they were able to get online at all. Others find that parking can be at a premium in the area and still more would have liked breakfast to be included in the rate. Overall, the essentials could be improved.
