The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were some complaints about the rooms and breakfast.

Although the majority of reviewers were pleased with their clean and well-equipped accommodations, a few guests complained about their rooms. They reported dated decor, old TVs, worn bathrooms, musty odours and noise transfer from guests in adjacent rooms.

The hotel's free breakfast was disappointing for a few lodgers. They described it as limited, plain and unappetizing, with a crowded eating area.
