6.6.Good.
  • 2.0.Poor

    The room was too cold and it was in the basement which is partly why it was so cold. Turning the heating on for an hour or so in the night and then for an hour or so in the morning is not enough. The heating should be on continuously.

    Very comfortable and convenient

    Really comfortable. Tea coffee facilities. Very warm and room was clean. We arrived late but the owner messaged us about how to get there. We had a really good stay. Will come again.

    The room was in the old style and quite dark, but it was good for 2 of us to stay for two nights. The bathroom was separate from the room but still private ( only we had access to it). Overall pleased. Easy access to the center. Would recommend.

    Done the job

    Had a bit of a wait to gain entry even though I let them know what time I would be arriving.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The staff is rude and arrogant. My room wasn’t cleaned for three days of my stay. The chair in the room is death trap. If you want to save your balls don’t book this B and B. There are lots of littered wires everywhere. The tv is like 5 inch. Avoid at all cost. They need to refund my money back to me.

    Good value for money

    Good value for money accommodation. We were on the ground floor in room 1 and it was plenty big enough for me and baby - lots of room even with the pram and suitcase in the room! Tv has plenty of channels on. Bathroom was ok, a little dated - but it’s not like you spend all day in there! Nice room if all you are using it for is just accommodation - we were out all day so was just somewhere to rest your head. Bed was comfy enough. Lots of tea and coffee in the room as well. Hotel is close to bus route to the city - 37 and 31 take you into city. Also there are restaurants and shops nearby. I don’t have anything negative to say as I feel it was good value for money and you get a big room for what you are paying.

    It is noise free and calm but the heater is not efficient enough for a person like me who just came from Africa.
