Negative Reviews

Guestroom beds are not in great shape.

One thing that can easily help guests enjoy their stay is replacing the guestroom beds. These mattresses are a bit old and worn out, leaving many people to be uncomfortable and unable to get a proper rest.

Small bathrooms are a common complaint.

Many of the people who book a room at Kantara Guest House have an issue with the bathrooms. Whether they are dealing with a private en suite or struggling with shared facilities, most guests agree that what is offered is small and doesn't really promote comfort.

Some guests have to deal with noise.

Sounds have a tendency to travel at the Kantara Guest House. As the walls aren't well insulated, this noise can cause a serious problem for guests who want to relax when the accommodation is at full capacity.
