Praise for rates and rooms

Handy location in a quiet central area

This property's location was in a reportedly quiet area close to the docks and industrial areas of town, which made it convenient for reviewers who were working nearby. It was also handily within walking distance of the town centre for shopping and dining options.

Negative Reviews


Occasional grumbles about service standards

During busy periods, diners claimed the food service was sometimes sluggish. There were also occasional claims that personnel were difficult to locate at times, which frustrated some guests during breakfast.


Reports of obstacles to sleep

Occasional late-night noise and music from the bar or beer garden was audible in certain rooms, which light sleepers found annoying at times. Furthermore, some rooms had thin curtains which did little to exclude light. A few critics were put off by occasional damp odours or food smells in certain rooms.


Criticism of some rooms

Some of the rooms attracted criticism for their reportedly dated look or small size. Moreover, some of the bathrooms were reportedly a tight fit or unsatisfactorily cleaned. Critics also noted dirty or damaged windows, tired-looking furnishings and broken shower heads in certain rooms.
