Score from 211 reviews Very good
The inn was clean and quiet. The staff were helpful and friendly. It was nice to have access to a kitchen and laundry. Within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, pubs & attractions. We would definitely stay here again.
The bed was not my favourite, but we weren't there to enjoy the amenities of the inn, but to explore the city.
Fridge Laundry Kitchen Decor Location Price
Coulda changed the sheets once a week
Location - perfect walking distance to downtown attractions Cozy Maritime feel Freedom to come and go Large showers Nice kitchen and seething area
Fruit flies! The hostess - we were not sure of her purpose and she interrupted our down times.
Location was excellent, the room was very clean and the place was quiet, all at an affordable price
location was perfect
Location was great an easy walk to everything downtown and close to shops for groceries etc It was great to have access to a kitchen and living space
The bathroom smelled like urine and the shared fridge was full of food most of which had been left from previous guests to share but something was definitely rotten. Also they changed the door code and didn't notify us until the day we arrived via email which we did not receive before arriving so we were locked out and luckily we're let in by another guest but then also found our room had been changed from our original room on the booking and someone was staying in it. We sorted this out ourselves but was a stressful start
nice spot to stay for a short period. Located in heart of city so accessibility was nice
The 'fire-place' in room #1 looks very dirty! Try to cover it as it is no longer functioning.
Friendly staff and excellent location
Very quiet atmosphere, excellent location near the downtown.
It is very cosy, good location.
No hairdryer available.
It was very comfortable, and centrally located. It is nice to meet others, share the kitchen, eat together. And, it was very quiet.
There were a few small issues with . getting people arriving w/o knowing what room they were to be in, getting keys and the door code. And there was a bit of scrambling to keep the toilet paper supplied in the bathrooms. Noe of the above would argue against recommending Novel Stay or staying there again on another visit.
Wonderful to have kitchen use. Close to university and downtown. I enjoyed socializing with other guests from other countries.
I live the kitchen and plenty of bathrooms. People were very nice and friendly to us. I love your island counter in your kitchen. It's a quiet place which is fine with me.Next time i would really need to stay on first floor, as I have difficulty with stairs, as a result of surgery..
Invest in a kettle that has an automatic shut off.
Awesome location. Friendly host. Nice prices.
I loved that we could wash and dry our clothes for free and that there was a kitchen for cooking.
There was a glass door which separated our room with the washroom. So my partner could watch me sitting on the toilet. That was uncomfortable.
location staff cleanliness comfort
Everything went as expected. I'd stay here again.
The relaxed nature of both the staff and the accommodations.
Kindly staff, feel comfort, value for money, and a close location from downtown.
washroom is not in private room, that is used by all people in house. but "booking.com" didn't tell me about that
Great location. Comfortable room with shower. Not huge in size but perfect otherwise. Full use of kitchen facilities. Highly recommend.
Staff not on site for late arrivals. Parking can be problematic. Scant instructions before arrival.
Very warm and comfortable Nice decor Easy to get to/from Great facilities Friendly staff Small establishment
Doors were a bit squeaky Some of the bed linen was a bit old
Clean kitchen. Spacious bedroom. Friendly staff. European bathroom. Charm of the reading room and kitchen area. Great value for money! Superb location.
Lights above stove didn't work so kitchen was dark.
Great place, great locale, super nice modern place to stay
confusing check-in, they didn't tell me how to do their unusual check-in, no credit card payment option.
