The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few complaints about the hotel's rooms.

Although the majority of reviewers praised their clean and comfortable rooms, a few lodgers had complaints. They reported a fair amount of road noise at the front of the hotel, as well as inefficient air conditioning and a lack of individual room-temperature control. One guest noted, "The road noise from Granville is loud and constant; it is a main and well-used thoroughfare. This means that your windows will very likely be closed at night and the AC will be on, or you will be wearing earplugs".
