Positive Reviews

Negative Reviews

The hotel needs a facelift

This property could use some TLC both inside and out. Dated furnishings that need to be replaced present more clutter than function, and bathroom fixtures that have seen better days could detract from your stay.

Some rooms are small

Some of the guest rooms at this hotel are on the small side, which can be problematic if you are travelling with more than one person, have a lot of luggage or need extra room to manoeuvre. Be sure to request an upgrade if you need more space.

Rooms above the kitchen get noisy

Guest rooms located above the kitchen may prove noisy when the staff is preparing meals which, because the hotel serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, is all the time. If the noise and smells from a busy kitchen are going to bother you, be sure to request a room that is nowhere nearby.
