Stayed here recently and was quite disappointed with the experience. The location is fine for the city centre and the owners were friendly enough.
The room seemed fine, if a little cramped, on arrival but the bed was very hard and difficult to sleep in. The bathroom was very small. There was little or no hot water and the water pressure was very low.
The dining room is in need of a good makeover and would work much better with individual tables. The cooked breakfast was very bland, basically pre-cooked and reheated in the microwave which resulted in uneven food temperatures. The butter provided on the table was clearly past its sell by date and tasted as such.
A big issue for me is that the owners were not resident and I'm not sure if any staff were resident which would be a major problem in the event of an emergency. There was no fire safety information in our room, therefore we did not know where the assembly point would be. This, as I understand, is a legal requirement.
Overall, the charge was too expensive for what potentially could be a very lucrative business and I feel it could be so much better.
