Issues with the rooms
A small number of guests were disappointed with the size of their rooms. They report that there wasn't much space between the bed and the walls and that the en-suite bathroom was quite small. However, other guests were happy with the size of the rooms and the hotel management point out that extra large rooms are available.
Breakfast divides opinion
Pantone offers a continental buffet breakfast for an extra fee. Some guests felt that the price charged was too high when considering the choice of items available. In contrast, comments from other guests mention that breakfast was satisfying and tasty and worth the price.
Cleaning not always top notch
According to feedback, the standard of cleanliness in the rooms sometimes leaves a little to be desired - a few guests mention that they found their room untidy upon arrival.
