The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints about the free breakfast and the staff.

Some guests were disappointed with the hotel's free breakfast. They described it as limited, poor, inadequate and insufficient for the number of guests partaking.

Although the majority of reviewers found the hotel's staff to be friendly, some lodgers were disappointed with the level of customer service they received. They reported a lack of on-site staff, which they found to be an inconvenience. One patron noted, "The service was lacking to non existent. When checking in there was nobody at the desk rather just a phone faced in our direction with a note to call a number. A key with our name on it was left in a coin envelope".
