I spent a night here earlier this week. I was very warmly welcomed by Ali- she and the team are really friendly and outgoing. My 2nd floor room was spacious and spotlessly clean, and had plenty of facilities including a toaster, lots of storage space, more than enough tea/coffee/hot chocolate and so on. Very comfortable bed made for a good...

We enjoyed a fabulous stay at The Blenheim. The top floor apartment had every convenience and was spotless.

We had such a wonderful time here. We came for a birthday, and the staff went above and beyond to make sure that it was special. We were so impressed with our room.
