I was given a small, single room (No 3) on the ground floor, at the front overlooking the street. It was a bitterly cold night. My bedroom (once I'd turned the thermostatic radiator up) was warm and cosy, but the (tiny) shower/toilet room was like an ice box, with no heating at all. The bed was comfortable and the TV...

The manager was polite and friendly. The en-suite room was quite small, so small that you couldn't open the bathroom door fully because the sink was in the way - a sliding door would have been much more useful. The room itself was ok, but the bathroom was a bit grotty and dirty. Bizarrly I was told that breakfast was... More

We stayed here for two nights in two rooms, one double and one single. As bed and breakfasts go, it was a little disappointing. The owner was very professional, but the rooms were very noisy. There were children running around upstairs above us at 2am. The maids come around at 10am and knocked. If you don't answer, they let themselves... More

Noisy, didn't sleep most of the night. Hot, so had to have the window open and room on road side so heard all the racers going up and down the road all night. TV or person talking all night downstairs. Felt like I needed a good night sleep after staying here. Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment. Room dated... More

The people were nice, the room was what I expected for the price, the food was good. The problem was the headache I got from the mold ridden bathroom. The smell permeated the room & nothing helped air it out. I could not get out of there soon enough! It took two days for the headache to subside.

I stayed here for 3 nights on business. I was a bit nervous as I am not keen on B&Bs. The welcome I received from the owner was warm and friendly. I stayed in a single room with a double bed very comfy though the room could do with an update. It was clean though. Breakfast was nice was met... More

Pros 1. Place was warm 2. Parking is on site and free 3. I gave 3 stars for the service as the only preserve to have with your toast at breakfast was jam but when we asked if marmalade was available the manager said no but offered us his own marmalade. 4. when we discovered that the roads would be...

The hotel is located near a mosque and is well supplied with nearby takeaway and fruit shops. It is about 10 minutes away from the main train station. The host was very welcoming and accomodating. Our room on the ground floor was spacious, although a bit dated and you could hear every step in the corridor - so I would... More
