Stayed here with a group of friends just over a week ago. It was very clean, very homely. They often gave us free soup and pancakes in the morning. I lost my wallet while I was there and they posted it out to me. Would definitely go again!

Hotels in town were fully booked due to a huge rock concert. I had no choice but to give this place a try after reading the good reviews on... More

The place has a very homely and comforting feel to it. We stayed as a couple in a private room with shared bathroom. Room was good size with free lockers, and the bathrooms were clean and always available. Stop... More

Although the bath's shared, there are three showers available at the 2nd floor we stayed and we never had to wait in lines. Two of the showers are also bathrooms, with another standalone sink and mirror; felt perfectly sufficient for the 4 nights we stayed (at... More
