What a friendly staff, they went out of their way to make my stay as rewarding as possible. The breakfast was fresh and had a combination of morning drinks to choose from. I was here from April 30 to May 3, 2016. I would highly recommend you to check out the facilities here. The bed was comfortable and clean.

Clean with updated bathrooms on a quiet street, reasonable walking distance from train stations and the Kings mile if you are European or enjoy 5 K runs. Hard beds marginal breakfast. The good: the neighborhood looked nice and quiet, nice eateries right around the corner, the walk wasn't too bad although it's mostly up hill. Flat screen in each room.... More

Caravel guest house is as close as you can get to a homely feeling while travelling in a foreign country. The room allotted to us was spacious with high ceilings.

We stayed in the room with 5 beds, and it felt like we'd walked into the children's books about Madeline! It was cute, quaint, and an average hotel. The room was comfortable--but got a bit warm at nights; we turned the heat down, but the housekeeper must have come in and turned it up again when we were out. The... More

I stayed at the Caravel, not by choice, while I did a weekend trip from London while I was visiting the UK. It was a part of a tour group & this is where they placed it. I loved it. It was very comfortable & clean. They gave us small breakfast items in the morning & the spot this place... More

I originally gave this place a poor review because they cancelled our reservation very last minute. However, to their credit, they tried to make amends by finding us another place to stay nearby and even offered to pay the difference in the room rate! I really appreciated the offer, but had already found other accommodations.

Good location, doesn't take long to walk to the city centre. Lovely and clean and all the rooms have a 'different' look about them which makes it more interesting. Breakfast was good but only toast and cereal etc which was fine for me but my husband wanted a hot breakfast so he found a nearby restaurant for his. Lovely friendly... More
