4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

had a lovely 3 night break here in August. Excellent location, about 10 minutes walk to shopping centre, 2 minutes walk to the Hoe, about 20 minutes walk to the Barbican area.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and parents, the 2 rooms were lovely, beds were comfy and it had great an suite facilities. We was both able to park our cars on site and it was perfectly located for walking on the Hoe and into town. The breakfasts were great and filling and we all enjoyed our stay.

My room was immaculately clean and everything was well kept and in working order. The rooms also seem to be reasonably well sound insulated as I didn't hear anything (no snoring etc) from the adjacent rooms which meant I got a brilliant night sleep. The hotelier was helpful and friendly, and she cooked up a mean breakfast. The only downside... More

We stayed on the top floor of this guest house with large room. Good facilities, comfortable and quiet night and a hearty breakfast with good choices on the menu. Hosts were really friendly and accommodating. The ability to park up and go for lunch down at the Barbican (5 min walk) before checking in was a welcome extra. Also a... More

My wife and I stayed and was very pleasantly surprised when we went to breakfast in the morning and they catered for lactose and gluten intolerance. The room was very comfortable and clean and the owners were very friendly. I would definitely recommend a stay.
