    The room was big and the bed was comfortable to sleep. The kitchen was quite big and the dining room was nice with the fresh flowers on the tables. For the deposit for the key it's possible to leave the passport if you don't have UK money.

    The bathroom was not quite comfortable and I still can't get used to the separate taps for cold and hot water. The parking lot is small, in the evening it was hard to park a car.

    This was my first experience of this type of accommodation. There were cooking facilities and plates etc which was great. Also met other travellers who gave me their experiences. It was a pleasurable experience for me also. The host was very friendly and polite.

    There was no secure place to keep personal belongings. I had a car so kept my bags in that. It was parked on the premises. Be early if you need parking otherwise only street parking is available. The bunk room was smelly when I arrived but another guest opened the window to air the room.
