Good 7.6 From 32 reviews

Very good 8.0
This is a friendly and cozy place to stay, really convenient to the centre, good value and very clean. Great to have a kitchen and thanks for letting me store my bag after checkout. It would be great to have the detail of how to pick up room key beforehand.

Grettir guesthouse
Basic room just what I was looking for, for 1 night stay. Centrally located close to all attractions. Clean and comfortable.

Great little hideaway in the city centre
Good property in great location, slap bang in the middle of the city centre within walking distance to all the main bars & restaurants and supermarkets. Property provided it’s own kitchen which was great considering how expensive food is there. Shared bathroom but everything was clean so that was good.

Fair 4.0
Nice place pity about neighbours
Great little find in the heart of the old town, clean room , visit spoilt by noisy guests and a beer delivery at 7 am, fridge shelf system didn’t work as other guest kept put food stuff on our shelves, walls are thin could do with black out blinds as the resturant in front of windows had lights on outside all night
Karl, gb1 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
Stingy quarters
Clean but very stingy on amenities such as towels. We wondered if three was a towel shortage in the city! Simple things like a shelf in the shower could make a big difference but there isn't anywhere to place your hygiene products except by your feet. If more than one guest out gets steamy then musty and the floor becomes a puddle... again because of the towel issue Manager assured us there was available parking and we parked where she indicated. Walked out to a parking ticket in the morning so get a second opinion on where to put your car.
