Negative Reviews


Not enough sunbeds round the pool.

A number of guests report that while the pool area is pleasant and well maintained, there does appear to be a lack of sunbeds which means some people are disappointed to find there is nowhere to relax by the poolside. In particular, there appears to be a problem with towels being left on sunloungers to reserve them when not in use. This has irritated many guests.


Need to pay to access in-room fridge.

The fact that guests have to pay a fee to access the fridge in their room has not gone down well. Similar comments have been made about towels, with guests complaining that they have to pay a hefty deposit to borrow one.


Can be noisy on an evening.

Evening noise has been an issue for some guests, whether it has come from the hotel’s own bar or from passing traffic from the nearby main road.
