The Bad
Guests seemed pleased overall with this hotel and its services, but there was some critique found online.

Occasionally guests did not like being served bread from bags where everyone had to open and close the bag and take a slice with their hands.

Recent room complaints were: rooms a little dated, room needed a more comfortable sitting area, and smoke from smoking rooms reached a non-smoking room.
