Negative Reviews

Disappointing rooms

The rooms here rarely impress guests. Although some seem to have been updated, the majority appear to look tired and dated. Guests point out various issues caused by a lack of maintenance and have, overall, felt rather disappointed by the quality of the accommodation.

Parking could be better

Guests note that the hotel's parking facility, although secure, is not particularly big and attracts a significant nightly fee. Many guests have chosen to use a public car park and paid around 50% of what the hotel charges.

Poor Wi-Fi service

The Wi-Fi here is a source of frequent disappointment to guests. No free Wi-Fi is available and guests have felt that this was an omission considering the room rates. Furthermore, the Wi-Fi has been found to be rather slow and unresponsive.
