Negative Reviews

Tired décor

Comfort doesn't seem to be a problem at the Best Western The Watermill, but some guests do remark that the hotel is looking a little tired Perhaps the aesthetics aren't as pleasing as they could be.

Problems with room temperatures

Some reviews indicate that the rooms at this hotel can be too hot or cold While this may be down to personal opinion at times, the problem is often attributed to radiators that won’t switch off and a lack of air conditioning in some rooms.

Crowded dining spaces

Although guests tend to rate the food at the hotel as of a good standard, several reviews indicate that both the restaurant and bar are a little on the small side This can lead to them being too crowded for comfort, especially at breakfast time.
