This bed and breakfast had absolutely everything I needed to make my vacation perfect. Clean and tidy, a place to store food, wifi, comfortable beds, sparkling bathrooms, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff, place to store my own food in the fridge, walking distance to the synagogue and a 15-minute bus ride to the centre of town. Being able to have... More

We stayed for a total of 5 nights. The bed was very comfortable and the room (if not a tad bit small) was very beautiful with a lovely view of the garden. Our room had a sink and cupboard. The owners were very helpful and would go out of there way to help you if needed. The breakfast was great.... More

Very nice budget accomodation. Located in a very nice area. We had our own bathroom. Would recommend looking for a private bathroom. Breakfast continental. Rooms spotless. It was nice. Would stay again if looking for budget stay.

Good sizes room shared bathroom but never had to wait too long to get in. Breakfast was quite basic but was good enough. It's cheap and cheerful with clean bedding and towels. No TV or tea making facilities in the room. About 45 min walk into town but a good selection of bars and places to eat 10 min walk... More

Before I start going into details - Yes I can recommend this BnB if you are looking for a budget accomendation. Rooms: We had a double room with own bathroom. Sheets and bathroom were spotless, no mold and everything as fresh as it can be. The furniture and everything else is very old though and the carpet has a lot... More

Had to stay in town one night at very short notice. Cheap, yes, too cheap to expect much. But: like many (but not all) of the B & B's in the Gardner St area, this place is basic with a capital B. Old, dusty, ancient bathroom shared with whole floor, and nothing but cereal and toast for breakfast. Such few... More

You just about get value for your money and that's it. If you go with high expectations then you'll be disappointed. Shared bathrooms and toilets so avoid if shy. Staff were friendly enough. Don't bother with the breakfast offer. Not good to hear a couple argue with manager due to a mistake with the bookings. Did manage to help us... More

I am very disappointed with the way I was treated in this venue. I asked at least 3 times for the manager to send me invoice of my bill as I need it, however he failed to do so. I had to phone up after I checked out, and he was extremely rude on the phone and even hung up... More

I stayed at the Marilyn Mansion hotel over the bank holiday weekend in May when there was a local election going on (all other hotels near to the city centre were completely booked out). Although it's not a quick walk to the city centre, there are good bus links just down the road which take 15-20 minutes to get into... More
