Staff were super friendly and had two cute little dogs, which was a bonus. Good location, close to bus routes, and there was a nice view from my room. It was small but suited my needs fine.
Only complaint is that I couldn't adjust the temperature at all as it was a bit hot and the window was sealed shut.
Very helpful staff comfortable bed and great breakfast.
Not enough toilet roll.
The hosts are fantastic! Ollie and Lola the French bulldogs are adorable. Feels like home away from home. Highly recommended
They offered to look after my bag before check in. They also phoned me as they were concerned I didn’t have any keys to get back in.
The TV in my room was smashed. They replaced it but the aerial cord had been ripped out of the wall, so no TV. The WiFi was barely useable. The room was not clean and everything was in a poor state of repair. The shower head was floppy so it was impossible to get under the shower, only to hold it in one hand. There were 2 dogs kept on the premises that roam the communal areas. Photos show - dead and live moths in room. Marks on walls, cracks around bathroom fan, holes in walls. Plug missing from basin, middle missing from shower controls. Holes in towels. Lock on room door.
Very nice breakfast
Small room and creaky bed
