Negative Reviews

No Help to Top Floors.

All rooms are located on the second and third floors of this hotel and unfortunately there is no lift. Lots of stairs mean a difficult climb to the top floor, especially with suitcases. This is, however, mentioned on the hotel's website.

Pub on the Pricey Side.

Guests describe the pub as not very nice in appearance. Tired decor and an unpleasant overall smell leave it looking unloved. Guests also think drink prices are on the expensive side.

No Control Over Temperature.

You cannot personally control your room's temperature and the heating goes on and off at specified times.
