The approach to the property takes you up a 40 degree incline with walls on both sides. My wing mirrors were around 3" away on either side during the entry and exit. To be fair though, they do say that only competent drivers request parking spaces on their property. I had a room

Hi Geoffrey, thanks for you stay, you don't have to be fit just not unfit. The room as explained when you checked in was not the budget shared bathroom room that you had paid for but a larger en-suite with your own private facilities with views over the city. The reason being we were awaiting new Axminster carpet to go over the acoustic 15mm flooring. Hopefully you will be able to revisit your review and nudge up to our average a 4 star / many thanks hope to see you again

Arrived to a really friendly greeting from Martin ( the owner) who showed us round. The drive is steep , but we had been warned so it wasn’t a problem - a bigger sign on the wall as you drive down towards it would be the only improvement I would suggest. The rooms are quirky

I stayed here with two friends for two nights this month. I was kind of taken aback when we first arrived as the style and décor was so eclectic! I got used to nothing matching and found it far more interesting than staying in say a Travelodge. The people were friendly, the help

Many thanks your review and yes definitely not a travelodge or in fact a Premier Inn or Holiday Inn. Glad you enjoyed your stay that's the aim. We are on google street view check us out you can come right into The Poplars and have a look round.

Stayed two nights and will visit again. Perfect location, with easy access to top areas of City via the rear gate or lower areas via the drive and down the hill. They do need to put up security lights on the drive(s) as very dark when using that route. Yes, it's difficult to

Booked online. Arrived early to check in and obtain door passcodes as no staff present after 6pm. Difficult to find. Entrance requires negotiating a very steep nearly inaccessible driveway damaging my car’s clutch and body work. On arrival sheet hanging from front window - not

Ok Greg Wain, basically called at 8pm to say he had a family emergency and would not be able to stay. Then via Expedia who he had booked a NON refundable room asked for a refund. Expedia explain as it was a NON refundable room hence the discount that no refund would be forthcoming. Absolutely everything in this review is a fabrication as i'm sure readers will have worked out, although "sheet hanging from front window" shows some imagination. Tip, If you might want to cancel a room book direct with us not a large booking agent, we have a website or call and give plenty of notice. Don't leave one star review you look a fool, I mean Titanium Nomad !! lol.
