Great little find. We checked in and the lady on the front desk was very welcoming. We were able to check in quickly and was given a choice of room. The room was very clean and tidy (as other reviews have said the walls are extremely thin so conversations were quiet, however we did have a room with an adjoining door to another room so wonder whether this was the reason for that).
The room and towells were all clean.
Breakfast was toast, juice, coffee, muffins so depends on your appetite but it was fine for us. The only drawback being only two chairs to sit and eat so you really need to take it back to your room.
We found the owners to be very pleasant, when we asked a particular question, the gentleman answered us comprehensively and also chased us down the street when he recalled something else which may be helpful to us.:)
Upon checking out, I was advised because of the room selected I was due a refund and this was processed quickly, nice surprise.
In a very good location, 10 minute walk to the front, which my husband and I did several times late at night and felt safe at all times.
Overall good budget place to say, would def return.
