Negative Reviews

Service is variable

While many guests have spoken very appreciatively of a friendly, welcoming and professional staff, some guests felt that the service let down the hotel a bit. Instances of slow service, having to wait for Check-in/ Check-out because of absence of staff and some instances of rudeness were pointed out.

Can get noisy at times

The rooms over the pub can get very noisy because there is music playing in the evenings. However many guests felt that this is only to be expected and isn't something to complain about.

Not very good value for money

Some guests felt that the hotel isn't very good value for money as is rather overpriced for what is on offer.
