Very friendly and helpful host. They have everything for little ones if needed. Breakfast is good. Room is nice, but shades are not enough if you are looking for darkness to sleep (we were traveling in may, and night came around 10pm and was gone around 4am). Bathroom is tiny, without much space to put your toiletries, and seemed a...

Perfect little place for the price. A short walk from the city centre. Great acceas to bus in and out of the city. Parking is a great help as you can just leave the car for a few days and not worry. Would use again.

We had a very pleasant stay here and the owner couldn't have been more helpful when we got into a spot of bother with our rental vehicle and needed him to urgently print out some documents for us. He got up early on a Sunday and made sure we got our documents despite his Internet going down. Definitely recommended and...

We stayed here overnight on a theatre trip for my birthday. The owner was very friendly and welcoming and was most helpful in recommending restaurants. There was a bottle of champagne and fruit left in our room on our return from the Theatre, wishing me a happy birthday! A lovely touch and most unexpected. Our room was spacious and the...

This hotel is shocking. They cancelled our booking for new years eve 3 days before with no offers to get us a hotel elsewhere or cover the cost of our tickets. We have tickets to the street party that we now cannot use as most other hotels are either booked or extortionate. If it had been the other way around...

Hi I feel I must respond to this review as in fact we went to great lengths to contact you as the telephone contact we were given for you was incorrect. However we emailed you asking you to contact us urgently several times as we had an unexpected incident here with leaking water causing a lot of damage. Nevertheless, we...

The location was very good and we managed to occupy one of the free parking spaces. however, our room was very disappointing with a broken shower door and toilet seat. Decor was tired and the needed a good clean. My sister had bottled water left for the first night we didn't receive any and biscuits were only provided for one...

We stayed for 5 nights and we could not have wished for a friendlier and cosier place to stay for our son's graduation ceremony. The food was excellent and this is a good value for the money we spent. We totally recommend it.

Such a disappointment given what looked on the internet to be a pleasant place to stay. My 'double room' turned out to be so small that there was barely room for anything other than the bed; in fact, there was no furniture such as a small table, chair, place to put the tea-tray (which was on the floor) and there...
