Negative Reviews

Décor Looks a bit Dated

Although this hotel is old, many guests feel that the interior should still be kept up-to-date with modern décor. The décor inside the guestrooms appears to be quite old, and some guests have mentioned that it could be time for an update.

Beds Could Be Improved

Some guests have found that the beds are a bit uncomfortable. Specifically, rooms that are considered to offer double accommodations actually just comprise two beds pushed together. If you're looking for a comfortable mattress, you may not find it here.

Dining Room Rather Empty

The hotel's dining room is located in the former hunting lodge, but many guests have found that it lacks atmosphere. It also appears to be pretty quiet, which could be nice if you don't enjoy crowds, but some guests find it odd.
