Negative Reviews

Slow restaurant service

While the food may be great, the service in the restaurant is not that good according to numerous reviewers. Guests mention that the restaurant's service is very slow and not up to par.

Morning noise from the market.

Because the Golden Fleece overlooks the marketplace, there can be noise first thing in the morning from market traders setting up their stalls for the day. This has disturbed some guests and woken them early.

No lift.

The fact The Golden Fleece is a listed building means that no lift can be installed. This in turn means that you have to be prepared to climb stairs to reach your room, which might pose problems for guests with mobility issues.
