Negative Reviews

Issues with the room heating

All rooms have a room heating feature. However, some guests encountered issues with the room heating system, causing inconvenience during their stay. The staff, though, is quick to respond to such issues, and most are immediately resolved.

Inn may get busy during the weekends

The inn is a famous place, especially during the weekends. It holds a lot of functions, particularly every Friday and Saturday night, so it could get noisy at times. Guests, though, recommend getting a room on the higher floors to avoid being disturbed by the noise.

Unsatisfying and expensive breakfast

Breakfast is offered for an additional charge. While this is very convenient, some guests expressed that the rate is too expensive for the quality of food they serve. There are a lot of restaurants within walking distance, though, for those who prefer eating a wider range of food.
