This place is a convenient walking distance to town, and well-appointed--in a lovely neighborhood of Victorian townhouses. On a main street and across the street from a pub that is party central late into the night, but if you close your windows it's quite soundproof, especially with the fan going in the summer. This is a tall place, so be... More

Had a lively time at the Town House. Single room was just right. Nice bathroom. Bed comfy. Great WiFi. Good breakfast and lovely welcoming staff. No hesitation in coming back. Convenient for all attractions. Easy walk to city and sporting stadiums. Good car park at rear.

I booked the single en suite in the eaves, and the website does warn that it has low ceilings. It certainly wouldn't do for anyone taller, but for me it was fine - I only banged my head once in the bathroom, though I had to be careful. The bed was comfy and a (noisy) electric fan was provided as... More

A beautiful house with its original character intact, despite updates to make in comfortable. Maintained with care and made cheerful by an attractive display of plants. Have stayed in two different single rooms, both bright clean comfortable and well-appointed. Breakfasts fantastic, and a warm, friendly atmosphere with the majority of guests sitiing at one large dining table. Staff do their... More

I recently stayed in the town house for one night with my family and was very impressed. The hotel itself is charming retaining much of its character and the reception rooms are lovely and homely. The bedrooms require a little updating but they're clean and provide all the facilities needed to make the stay comfortable. The water was lovely and... More

Me and my two friends had a lovely visit for an overnight stay, very accommodating to my friends dietary needs, clean and provided everything needed. Very close to city centre and parking and Wi-Fi such a bonus. Would definitely book again, thank you x

Had one night here, Had previously been aroun 4 years ago and the first time was much better. The room was okay but a little tired. The towels provided were not particularly big and seemed ready for replacing. We were pleasantly greeted on arrival however. Wifi worked well. This is not a place for anyone with mobility problems as the... More

We booked this B&B because it had secure parking, it was a reasonable price & was close to the city. It was probably very good 10 years ago but is in need of updating -the room was spacious & comfortable but the en-suite was poor with a shower in a 'cupboard' and a less than pristine toilet. Breakfast tasted as... More

Came across this place whilst on business needed a place to stay for one night. Room was very clean and reasonable prices. Breakfast was good. Pub next door for dinner so can't beat that. Parking in rear car park. Small tv in room. Bed comfortable. Very quiet. Tea and coffee in room.

Let's deal with the positives first, the staff are first class and can't be faulted in anyway, they were all very helpful and pleasant. The main problem with the accommodation is that it requires updating as the shower room is very small and in my case was a more like a shower box, the toilet was the type fitted with... More
