Rooms were clean and comfortable. Wii Fi free. Quiet. Breakfast was good with nice staff. The only thing wrong was we had no soap in the bathroom which has never happened before. Had a shower with Carex hand wash!

Location: literally a three minute walk from the railway station and just a few minutes more to the town centre Accommodation: the room was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and well appointed. Breakfast: a good choice of fruit, cereals and cooked. The cooked breakfast was done to order and done to a turn. Hospitality: Robert, the owner, could not have been... More

Great value. Spotlessly clean. Great breakfast. Convenient for City centre. Would not hesitate to return. Just so much better than the multiple ' value ' chains. Very comfortable bed and the room was very quite.

As everyone says very clean & comfortable with an excellent breakfast. Only negative is that being situated close to a big post office distribution centre, we were kept awake from 3 am. Would suggest you request a room at the back. Not the owners fault, they can't control the traffic. Would also like to have seen some kind of net... More

Really clean, comfortable, nice little hotel. Very accomodating owners and staff. We were a group of eight attending a wedding, ages ranging from 20's to 90's all points covered. Excellent breakfasts. Very comfy spacious rooms. A massive upgrade has taken place on most of the building, rest not far behind. There's not many places I find I'm able to recommend... More

This is a great little guest house/ hotel. Cheap as chips but well fitted out, immaculately clean and a great breakfast. Trip advisor say my review has to be 200 characters long so I am just filling it up with meaningless nonsense is that long enough trip advisor?

A very short walk from rail station while pulling a heavy bag & easy to find. It's very clean throughout, management is welcoming & willing to meet your needs. During my 5 night stay some remodeling was in progress - painting - without disruption. 2 nights I was in a triple-bedded room, then a single wide bedded room. The linens... More
