Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I liked the position of the property and the well fitted out amenities I didn't like not having wifi
Stayed 1 night in Jan 2021

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Room comfort
Hard beds and false Queen bed
POSITIVES -Lady at front desk was helpful and friendly with advice on things to do there -Kitchen had good facilities NEGATIVES -extremely overpriced at $135 a night for me and my girlfriend. -Bed was hard and difficult to sleep all night -noisy with a loud droning of machinery, like a generator that could - be heard all night outside window when closed -kitchen was meant to be closed at 1045 but 18 year olds were there talking loud and smoking at 12 midnight. Which also meant smoke was coming through my window when I had it slightly open -paid for Queen but was given two twins hare single beds pushed together -beds were hard and not comfortable -wifi didn't work at all -lifts were turned off at night. Probably to save electricity -no one was at reception after 6pm -poorly designed blinds in room had gaps on the sides meaning the sunlight was bright and woke me up from sunrise -TV was unbranded and tiny at around 50cm long. Probably the smallest I've ever seen -location far from restaurants in cowes
