Negative Reviews

Rooms on the smaller side

While the rooms on offer at this hotel are generally rated as clean and comfortable, guests often felt as though there should be more space for their luggage.

Food could do with improving

Guests feel as though the food served here needs improving, especially during dinner services. Some guests mentioned that their food was bland and lacked quality.

Needs a lick of paint

From the outside, the property looked a little drab or uninviting, according to reviewers who expressed negative opinions. They suggested that the place would look brighter if more attention was paid to little details like paintwork and floral displays. There were also claims that some of the rooms had ageing mattresses or bathrooms in need of minor repairs.
