Property condition


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Dirty carpet in room. Cold. No soap in room. Electric blanket didn't work. Cold dining room. No warmth. Staff could have been more helpful and made the place look more inviting. Dirty verandah floor. Staff could have cleaned it and made it look more appealing. Nice old building, needs more TLC. Clean sheets and towels in room and nice view though. :D

  • Disliked: Amenities

The property is very close to Lake Brunner, which is lovely. The staff was too small and clearly overworked- beyond providing the most basic service, they really couldn't be bothered. The bathroom was very small and what you'd expect in a 1-2 star property. And NO WIFI in my room- bummer.

My very first negative feedback

Before book in please check if you room has a bathroom attached. I couldn’t really get it from the description, so booked the room and was surprised at arrival - I had my bathroom at the end of the long corridor. Secondly, the hotel is part of the pub, so it’s incredible noisy almost all night. They have a food separated from the pub, but people constantly leave it open, so the administration of hotel should think about the noise prevention a bit better.
