Negative Reviews

Parking Problems

If you aren’t staying in a bustling city such as London this is probably not quite as big of an issue, but not being able to park on the premises and having to pay to dock your car somewhere else is certainly a sticking point.

Natural Lighting Not Enough

Yes, the hotel offers a view of the Yorkshire Coast that projects a mostly sunny glow, but that cannot make up for a general dimness that settles in when the sunlight isn’t shining.

Lukewarm Water and Low Flow

At the end of a long day or the beginning of a new one, the last thing you need in your shower is faulty flow and room temperature water.
