Negative Reviews


Better for shorter durations

Many guests felt that the hotel is good enough for overnight visits and shorter stays but felt that it may not suffice for longer durations. A few guests thought that the hotel is rather basic and that the rooms were a little dark and drab.


Lots of stairs

Some guests pointed out that the old lodge building has no lift and that there are quite a few steps to navigate, particularly for guests in rooms on the higher levels.


Some more niggles

One or two guests detected a musty smell in the room, concluding that this was perhaps because of the lodge's proximity to the river. Some guests thought that the water was not hot enough in the bath. The tap water is labeled as not being drinking water. The breakfast choices are limited felt several guests.
