Room was tiny, could barely walk round the bed. Sheet straight onto bed no mattress protector, the mattress was stained really bad with what looked like urine and coffee. The bed was very uncomforatable. Pillows were like boulders, hard as rock, cheapest you could possibly buy.

Don’t believe the negative reviews on here - we had a lovely stay. Great little find - near the high street & great value for money. Staff friendly & helpful, lovely 13th C chapel gardens & the noise level was fine. I did use earplugs but slept well & it was great to be so near

Is there any parking
There is no parking at the guesthouse itself but you can purchase a discounted 24hour voucher from the guesthouse for a nearby public car park. We did that and it was fine

"Choose rooms away from the front. Don't underestimate the noise"
"Rear rooms would be better as they will be quieter."
"If you have to stay here...like under penalty of death or something....make it the bottom floor, maybe that will be cooler."
"Go somewhere else"
"worst room 9 at the front"
$55 - $111 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
