Negative Reviews

Parking is an issue

Reviews suggest that guests struggle to get in and out of the parking spots available on site. This is because the parking spaces are quite narrow, which can be tricky for those in bigger vehicles. Guests also complain about the lack of sufficient parking bays on site.

Noise from surroundings

Guests find the noise levels in the surrounding area quite high at times. As a result, those who are sensitive to sounds struggle to get proper sleep. There are pubs that play music until the early hours of the morning, as well as noise from the busy streets surrounding this hotel.
