Breakfast may disappoint

Although dining here is generally good, guests have sometimes described breakfast as disappointing. It's an order the night before type deal but choices seem to be limited, the food is poorly presented and the whole experience is said to be rather bland.

Thin towels, insufficient toilet paper and meagre hospitality trays are among the other disappointments. Guests also comment on the lack of hotel information in the rooms.


Rooms are a bit pricey
