One of the worst, no lift n you got to pay wifi. Cramp room, television so small. You got to climb the stair with you luggage without help. Too expensive. Breakfast was only bread butter n jam no meat or cheese. Breakfast area so small you got to wait till someone leave than u can use your breakfast.

This smallish hotel (?20 rooms) seems to be built around the stairs. You need to be quite fit if you're allocated a room on the fourth floor (82 steps) - no lift. A smallish room with a corner shower/basin/loo capsule (like French hotel chain Premiere Classe). Curtains, duvet a bit dated. Bed had a cheap mattress. Only a small part... More

Considering that I paid £35 for a single room, I was not expecting the peaks of luxury. Indeed, having read the mixed comments on the review websites I did wonder what I was going to be letting myself in for, but then, for one night........! On arrival, a pleasant and helpful receptionist, speedy check-in and up to the room. Not... More

Upon check in my husband and I didn't have a decent experience from the start. The front desk attendant was rude right away once he asked if we were sharing a double bed, saying, "You know you're sharing a double bed ?" We both answered yes thinking nothing of it. My husband is 20 years older than me and sometimes... More

Booked at the last minute at a very reasonable price, room was clean and freshly decorated although shower room was very small, my room was on the top floor and there is no lift so it was quite a trek up many flights of stairs. Left before breakfast started so can’t comment on that but for the price paid and... More
