Score from 1333 reviews Very good
not situated in the center of the city but no problem there- the No 10 bus got us there in 3 minutes
Rooms. Near centre. Cosy. Helpful stuff.
Cold in the breakfast room. They don't take cash. Only credit cards. Extra pay for reception after 9p.m., when we were coming to it.
I can not fault this establishment.Friendly,comfortable and fantastic value
Nothing at all
Breakfast was good and generally clean appearance but in need of some small renovation.
Generally clean but some areas of the room need improvement, i.e. dust and paint the bathroom radiator, clean the mould from the shower base, use a mattress protector[ we noticed a bad stain on the mattress under the bottom sheet]. Hot water supply not always available[ I had to run the hot water tap for about 5 minutes before I could get any hot water]. The shower was OK once set, however, the performance of the hot water supply is similar to the type of problems with some combination boiler sources.
10 minutes walk from the centre, nice staff
very small room, and bathroom, very thin walls, we could hear every word of the neighbours, portioned breakfast
The room is generally spacious and warm. It's nice for a family of three. The breakfast and the dining area is brilliant. Love it!
A little bit far away from the center. The bathroom is not very satisfactory as whenever we turn on the light there is this annoying noise.
Friendliness of the staff comfort of the accommodation
The negative reviews I read before I went
Staff were friendly and helpful. Love the cosy room and setting. The room was big. The location was great. We could walk to everywhere.
Breakfast was nice. The room was clean and cosy (one mattress was fine,another one was quite uncomfortable:().
Toilet! We were thinking from what site to get to it and how it will be possible to sit on it. This was a puzzle :/. There were no space to put legs near it :/.
I couldn't work the shower, phoned the mobile number from the booking and someone came and helped within 2 minutes, even though it was quite late at night. The guy was really friendly, even after finding out it was just me being stupid. I only used it as somewhere to sleep but had good wifi and quite modern furnishings compared to other places I have stayed at that price.
No hairdryer that I could find in the room.
Not availability of parking place, nor when vacant (the direction/host was not able to offer it for the simple time of displacement of baggages and, as a consequence I kept a penalty on my car just in that minutes, i.e. 9:34 am of the day of leaving).
Nice staff, good service. Bed very comfortable
Breakfast too olily. A little so far away from city centre.
Breakfast Locality-easy walk to town
Friendly staff, good location (in relation to city centre), comfy bed, good breakfast.
Nothing to dislike.
The bathroom was ok except the fan and the light over the mirror didn't work.
Over priced. Small - my husband had to climb over me to get out of bed. You couldn't lie in bed and watch the TV unless you could swivle your head around 180 degrees and lay it on your chest.
The room was nice, clean and modern.
There wasn't any windows to open for fresh air.
The location was very good, and the Staff were very friendly and helpful
I book for this hotel because i love the dinning room and this is the only reason i book this hotel but when i go there they change the hotel which is the next door but doesn't have the great view in the breakfast
Not able to check in, had to wait outside for half an hour.
Lovely breakfast :) Very nice host :) Warm cosy and welcoming bedroom with very nice features :)
I had difficulty getting the door of the room to lock but other than that it was flawless! I appreciated being phoned to be told about the extra charge if I didn't check in before 9pm :)
Very pleasant staff, comfortable clean room
As they own the property across the road from the main check-in (which is where we stayed) did not like having to cross a busy road first thing in the morning for our breakfast, other than that can't really complain.
Everything would definitely stay there again
the place where was the guest house situated. Everything is close. You live almost in the center of the city
Nothing! Im totally satisfied
On day of arrival I was told that, while my friends will stay in the guest house, I will stay (for the first night) in another property down the road. This was the first time I was told of this - no previous communication. All of us were locked inside the second property and the manager had to come and unlock us. The plug connecting the TV and the kettle was a fire hazard. The cable was not long enough for the plug to reach the floor - instead, it was hanging in the air - meaning that a kettle full of water could easily fall and the water to be thrown all over the electrics. The waiting staff for breakfast make a lot of mistakes: toast and coffee are forgotten, for example. No toiletries in the alternative accomodation I had to stay on my first night.
