Very good 8.0
Overall good stay
Overall very nice stay. It was a bit cold due to the high ceilings.. the aircon/heating was very slow. Also the shower has very little hot water!! Very easy to run out of it when two people need to shower, so not pleasent in winter. Other than that the location is great and the place is beautiful.

Pretty little boutique BnB
From the pre-visit correspondence, throughout our stay, and the checkout process, the service warm and friendly really put the icing on a lovely stay in a beautiful boutique BnB. The entrance is easy to miss from the outside, but the interior is simple and stunning We were in room 3, which is one of the premium rooms. We loved the decor, the French doors and balcony are so pretty. And the room was so comfortable, such a good quality and comfortable bed, with lovely pillows and duvet. The bathroom fittings were lovely too, with a roomy, powerful shower. There isn’t masses of storage but we managed ok. The only slight downside is that the beautiful French doors don’t offer much in the way of sound insulation and we did find that we needed to get ear-plugs part way through our stay, but we slept soundly after that. There are lots of nice shops and restaurants in the area, and it’s really clean and tidy, with reasonable access to the city centre and gothic quarter (either on foot or via public transport). Other than beautiful rooms the property offers a cute little mezzanine with little bistro tables and chairs, a microwave and tea/coffee facilities so you can eat there if you bring anything back. Water and a few other drinks are available via an honesty box just below. Overall we can’t say enough good things about this little hotel and would really like to thank the two members of the hotel that we encountered as they were truly lovely.
