Location to town
The downstairs area smelt of cigarette smoke
My booking included a private sitting room overlooking pretty gardens and a view of the Cathedral though the trees. I hadn't realised when I paid for it that a continental breakfast was included in the price. The shower was very good, strong jet and warm, easy to use. The bed and the sofa were very comfortable. Nick, the owner, was very friendly and helpful.
No complaints, I had a peaceful and relaxing stay.
Relaxed hospitality and nice room
Would have preferred a higher quality breakfast.
Toilet flush didn’t work and could not be fixed. We informed problem at about 18.30 at the time of checkin, and returned at 22.00, problem remains unsolved. The owner says he will refund money and we could go to other place at that late hour, without offering any help.
Clean, cosy and comfortable room.
Not allowed to check in until 16.00.
