Positive Reviews


It's a great value.

Many guests who stayed really felt that not only were their stay and meals affordable, but represented an excellent value for their money. This was especially true for the guests that took advantage of one of the many specials they offer through their website or coach tour packages.


You'll have room to spread out.

Previous guests were generally pleased with the size of the rooms. They found them to be quite spacious, with plenty of room for a larger family to stay in comfort without feeling cramped.


The restaurant does not disappoint.

Guests were happy with both the quality and quantity of the food served at the hotels restaurant. While they reported it to be nothing fancy, everything was prepared perfectly, and and seemed to mostly be made from scratch. Reviews recommend saving room for the dessert cart.

Negative Reviews


The decor is outdated.

Many reviews noted that the decorations and furnishings clearly have not been updated for some time. The general aesthetic is reminiscent of the 1980's. Some people found this glaring in light of the many, more modernly furnished hotel options in the area. Additionally, the furnishings are starting to show signs of wear and tear.


The water pressure is weak.

Several guests found that the water pressure in their show left something to be desired. Many travellers also complained that the water was unusually loud, and could be heard surging through the pipes in the walls.


Don't count on the Wi-Fi.

Though they advertise complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, many reviews complained that the Wi-Fi did not reach their guest room. Most guests had to go to the common areas of the hotel in order to hop on the Wi-Fi. Those that could get connected found the data transfer speed to be abysmally slow, and frequently got booted off.
