Positive Reviews

Positive comments about rooms

Although the rooms here were hardly the height of luxury, they reportedly had all the basics needed for a pleasant stay on a budget. Guests welcomed the cosy beds and described the rooms as neat and clean. Bargain hunters felt they got decent value for money as the nightly room rates were normally inexpensive for the area.

Praise for swimming pool

Reviewers really appreciated the inviting outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, as well as the sun terrace. More often than not, these rooftop facilities came as a pleasant surprise for guests.

Good hospitality

Guests spoke highly of the helpful, friendly and energetic members of staff, who were reportedly eager to please. Many reviewers experienced a hassle-free check-in too. On the food front, diners were largely impressed by the catering on offer at this hotel’s restaurant, even if some critics felt the menu prices were slightly pricey.

Negative Reviews

Maintenance and housekeeping could be better

There were claims from guests that some rooms and bathrooms here were in better condition than others. The rooms that were in poorer condition reportedly had problems like broken bathroom tiling, ineffective air conditioning units, tired-looking pieces of furniture and dated décor. If reviewers had one concern about cleanliness it was that they encountered stained bedding in several rooms.

Concerns about Wi-Fi service

The Wi-Fi network at this property was said to be somewhat inconsistent. Guests explained that they became frustrated using the service due to poor speeds and a spotty signal.

Mixed feelings about location

Although this place was close to town centre amenities like shopping and dining, its location in the mainly industrial town of Parwanoo was a bit underwhelming for sightseers.
