Negative Reviews

Occasional noise complaints

A number of guests mention that they were able to hear traffic, although this issue appears to be limited to the rooms that face the road. Guests also comment that if the hotel is playing host to a private function such as a hen party, things can get a little rowdy.

Some shared bathrooms

Not all rooms at the Applewood Hotel have an en-suite bathroom. Although the shared facilities are found to be clean, it goes without saying that sharing a bathroom doesn't suit everyone. Book early to secure an en-suite room.

Breakfast costs extra

While guests tend to be complimentary about the standard of the breakfast served at the hotel, some would have preferred that the cost be absorbed into the room rate. On the plus side, the cost is not excessive.
