  • The room was terrible, the bed was NOT a double, it was a small single, the shower head…

    Not a good value for the money

    The location is good, the place from the outside looks very cute, very English. But... 1. the maintenance is lousy 2. the window can't be closed, and that is a bit annoying when it is cold. and on top of that: 3. when asked to call a cab, I had to wait about 20 minutes because the taxi was not really a taxi but a private car. There was no meter and when the driver asked for 20 GBP he told me that with a meter it should be much more, but on the way back, with a taxi, I paid 15 GBP...

    Very Basic

    Don't have high expectations if you are staying here. It is very basic and needs a good clean and update. Wallpaper was ripped on the walls and paint peeling in the bathroom. In the morning took my partner 10 mins to get hot water of the shower running for us to be able to use.

    It was close to where I needed to be and for 3* price excellent - if you want 5* quality though pay more elsewhere. Breakfast good and staff extra helpful.

    Last resort

    There were used toothpicks in the shower. Squashed bugs and stains on the walls. It is outdated and the condition of the room was poor. But for £40. You get what you pay for I guess.
