Welcoming staff

Guests are welcomed with warm and friendly service by the staff at this hotel, reviews suggested. The pleasant environment that this creates is certainly appreciated by most reviewers.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast variety could be better

The breakfast on offer every morning lacked the kind of variety most guests expect to find at a hotel. The limited variety of food is a concern, as the breakfast becomes tiresome after a while for those on longer stays.

Slow and weak Wi-Fi signal

Although the Wi-Fi at this hotel is free, guests find the connection almost impossible to use. The slow speeds together with the lack of signal makes it hard to use the Internet properly. This is, of course, quite frustrating for most guests.

Cleanliness could have been improved

There were occasional reports of poor cleanliness in the private rooms. Several issues including dirty linen and dusty surfaces caused concern. The bathrooms in particular needed more attention, as most reviewer complaints regarding the cleanliness of this hotel relate to the bathrooms.
