Positive Reviews

Very Competent Staff Members

Guests often mentioned how the staff members were very good at their jobs and gave warm welcomes. You can expect prompt service and good attitudes when staying here.

Convenient Off-Street Parking

Guests said the hotel has a generously sized off-street parking area, and they found it to be a very handy amenity when they didn't want to struggle to find a safe place for their cars. They mentioned that the surrounding area is a little bland, meaning you will probably need a car to get to points of interest, but at least the private parking simplifies things.

The Food is Freshly Prepared

Guests were impressed because they could tell the food was made fresh instead of being made in bulk and stored prior to serving. As a result, guests were generally very satisfied with their meals overall and thought that the food here was a definite highlight.

Negative Reviews

The Soundproofing is Poor

Frequently, guests were awoken by exterior sounds ranging from traffic noises to people outside talking or doing their daily activities. Creaking floorboards also caused minor disturbances, so bringing a pair of earplugs is a good idea.

The Rooms Are Quite Basic

Some guests were disappointed about how the rooms only offered the most basic of amenities. Usually this was not seen as a major fault, but at the same time, some guests remarked that there wasn't much about the rooms alone that would make them eager to return.

Problems Using the Wi-Fi

Guests sometimes griped that they were unable to use the wireless Internet here. Connection problems were common, especially when guests were in their rooms rather than the public areas.
