Negative Reviews

Breakfast timing grumbles

Several early risers bemoaned the timing of breakfast, claiming it didn't always start early enough to fit in with their timetable.

Cleanliness and maintenance issues

Bathrooms and carpets that could have done with a deeper clean plus tired-looking decor and marked walls were among the minor maintenance and cleanliness problems described by critics in some rooms.

Claims of shortcomings in certain rooms

Although many travellers enjoyed a tranquil stay, several light sleepers mentioned that nuisance noise from neighbouring rooms and corridors was sometimes too easily audible. Some guests also disapproved of the small en suite bathrooms or claimed their rooms had a shortage of plug sockets.
