The Bad
As mentioned above, positive reviews greatly outnumbered negative reviews for this property, among the reviews sourced for this analysis. However, there were some concerns raised by guests.

A couple reviewers were disturbed by noise from neighbouring rooms and the halls. Guests described hearing conversations and footsteps. One reviewer thought that the tiled floors in the guest rooms contributed to the noise disturbances.

Isolated complaints included: an in-room TV was not working, the breakfast room was uncomfortably cold and small, and the pool and hot tub could have been heated to a warmer temperature.
