Me and my partner stayed in room 5 for a night after visiting back in May time but being unable to get any accommodation for the night so this time we booked in advance.

Perfect central location in walking distance from the train station and above the pub! Close to shops and restaurants. Friendly welcome. Room includes tea and coffee, some rooms en suite, some with shared bathroom.
