We were visiting William Harvey hospital for tests for me and initially chose to stay here for its location. It also looked very homely However we were surprised by the way we were accommodated by Shaun, the owner, as we were offered an upgrade to a bigger room as the twin room we had booked was not available. This was... More

The exterior of this hotel give an ominous impression of what is to be expected. We were greeted with a sort of 3rd degree of inquisition. The place smelled stale. Our room was just OK however we discovered that the lavatory had not been properly cleaned. We tried to connect to the internet, we could not. Eventually we were told... More

I arrived at 8 . 30 in the evening and received an extremely warm welcome from the owner. The room (no11) was spacious and very clean with lots of useful amenities like a hairdryer, iron and ironing board! A fan and plenty of toiletries. Although I didn't eat here- I am on a special diet - the breakfast looked and... More

Surprised to find such a shabby room with dirty mugs for tea and toothmugs that were filthy. Even worse were the hairs from previous occupants on the bathroom floor. And no shower gel - don't they clean or check the rooms? Continental breakfasts usually have more than one croissant per person and even the one delivered was small and crushed... More

I stayed with my two daughters on the way to a family funeral. We had booked a large room with 3 singles; on checking in, this was no longer available. But the owner quickly gave us a double and a twin instead (same rate). Although the guest house had taken a deposit on my booking, we were charged the full... More

The staff were welcoming, the room was clean and very comfortable, the location was good for Ashford International. It was good value for money, in quiet, pleasant surroundings and I would definitely stay again. Only minor gripes - the shower was insipid, no water pressure, and the long quilt covers on the beds were too heavy and were a tripping... More

Hotel was spotlessly clean with spacious rooms and large bathroom. Good private parking. Booking in was difficult and after 10 minutes of owner trying to decide which room to put us in we were finally given a double bedded room although we had requested a twin on the original booking. Website advertises rooms with hairdryer and small fridge - ours... More

We were warmly welcomed by the lovely owner Sean. It was a very spontaneous decision to go to 'Downsview', we just were on the search for a b&b. Anyway it was no problem to get a lovely and clean room, comfortable and quiet as well. We got a bright and spacious room, the beds were cosy. The stuff were all... More

Our second time at Downsview and this time we had a family room. Light and airy, the bedroom and ensuite were immaculately clean and the beds very comfortable. Just a few yards up the road is a pub which serves excellent meals and we slept like logs - very quiet overnight. Breakfast was very good and the lady who looks... More
