Latest Reviews

Inconvenient with power cuts at random times (and in particular for major meals). The hotel has put in place an emergency generator, but unfortunately very close to guest rooms creating noise and some exhaust pollution. Suggest that the emergency generartor is placed in a noise isolated location off the main premises
