Very good 8.0
Comfy stay but no parking
Great stay for business but parking is difficult as there is no onsite parking. Bus lane outside door so if you have expensive gear not ideal but plenty of local area parking.

Great Value and Excellent Location
We enjoyed our time at Allison House. The bedroom was small, but comfortable, the breakfast was good and the service could not be faulted. The location was excellent and we would happily stay there again.
