Negative Reviews

The Hotel can Get Noisy at Times.

Some guests reported that there is a lot of noise around the hotel, particularly at night and coming from several sources including a loud nightclub nearby that features loud music, loud partiers leaving that club at 3AM and people walking and talking in nearby rooms due to a lack of soundproofing.

Poor-quality Food and Slow Service.

The food served at the hotel restaurant is of poor quality and features packaged and frozen items that are simply reheated in the microwave, small desserts, a lack of bread rolls and small portion sizes. Also reported was overworked servers who seem confused and tired and this results in slow and unfriendly service.

Guest Rooms are Hot and Uncomfortable.

Guests reported that the rooms at Skiddaw tend to get very hot and windows can't be opened due to the noise outside. Also reported was uncomfortable beds and furnishings, a lack of space and old-fashioned decor.
