Fabulous Hotel
Wonderful hotel, spotlessly clean, great room and a modern bathroom with a large walk in shower. Can’t rate it highly enough
Susan, gb3 night trip
Poor 2.0
Very unclean and uncomfortable
Arrived 24.9.2019 and shown to a very small room with shower , after looking at the pillow cases on the bed we found that the cases were very soiled and after further investigation the mattress was heavily stained we could not sleep on a bed that was unhygenic. We then requested another room. Which was up a further two flights of stairs but only had a bathroom , not a shower , this was acceptable. Although the bath had to be cleaned by the person showing us the room before we could use it . this room was ok although the bed was very uncomfortable and room was very dusty. The food / breakfast was ok. In all of this time not one apology was given for the inconvenience that we had to endure . on day that we left all the waitress was concerned about was the return of the parking permit. Still no apology. Would not reccomend this B&B ( because that is all it is ) and i am amazed how many people rate this B&B as good. Will definately never go back there again
Kelvin, gb2 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Mixed feelings
Generally a good stay, friendly staff good breakfast. Very low water pressure to basin and odd tap operation. Shower pressure low. My partner would also prefer a wand type shower head to prevent the “water boarding “ effect. In a boutique hotel I would expect a small fridge with fresh milk not the awful sachets provided, i can have these in Burger King! A few small adjustments to this hotel would lift it to the position it should be at.
