눉I stayed for three midweek nights in a street-facing room. Due to an abundance of bars, restaurants and fast-food places nearby there were regular bursts of noisy group activities right underneath my window. Never for long, though, and quite what you would expect at such a location. Good earplugs are highly recommended, especially at weekends (I suspect)!
The accommodation is without breakfast, so it would be nice to find a list of decent breakfast / lunch / dinner venues within a 5-minute walk radius. I'm sure some of them would happily offer deals for Abbeygate guests. A kettle, mugs and a few teabags wouldn't go amiss, either.
I was a little concerned about the old-fashioned locks. They are very easy to pick.
눇The location is very central yet one block removed from the main city traffic, and close to the river.
All my bed linen was pure, high-quality cotton. My mattress and pillows were extremely comfortable. The furniture and room decoration was simple yet tasteful, practical and calming.
The shower room was of decent size; it had plenty of good towels, large windows and a proper radiator.
Everything was clean and in good working order. The beds weren't made during my stay, which suited me fine. I was asked in between if everything was okay or if I needed fresh towels.
