Negative Reviews


Some Refreshing in Order.

Some guests observed tired looking carpets, chipped paint, with others finding their furniture and mattresses to be overly worn, described as feeling springy and even waterbed-like. Still, many of the guests mentioning these problems felt the hotel was wonderful overall, and in an unbeatable location.


Breakfast Doesn't Suit Everyone.

While many guests expressed having had a wonderful breakfast here, others were far less impressed. These diners mentioned being disappointed by being served tinned fruit, and an overly oily cooked brekky.


Lake View Falls Flat.

While many guests had a wonderful view of the water, some guests found the promised lake view from their particular rooms to be somewhat deflating, with trees blocking the way. Others described having to crane their necks just to spot the lake out of small windows.
