Negative Reviews

Some rooms away from the main building.

Some of the guests whose rooms were located in the new extension objected having to walk to the main building in order to get to the restaurant and the spa particularly during bad weather as the area is unsheltered.

Noisy wedding parties.

The hotel is a popular venue for wedding receptions which inconvenienced some guests whose rooms were close to the function suite. Loud music and noise from the revelers prevented some guests from getting a good night’s sleep.

Disappointing breakfasts.

Guests were disappointed with the quality of the cooked breakfasts stating that the food wasn’t well prepared and didn’t taste fresh. Some also objected to waiting longer than expected to receive their orders.
