I can't speak highly enough for Lorraine and John and their B&B, Kent House. I chose it because of the location and the other reviews I read. The location is great, right next to the train station and buses. It is close to a street with lots of great restaurants and bars and about a 10-15 minute walk to the... More

John, our host is very accommodating, hospitable and knowledgeable about the city so do ask him questions. We found this spot after much searching over Airbnb.com. Also, some details on the setup- this is a multi-level town home built back in my the 1800s, and renovated quite well. Also, it may always be nearly filled to capacity due to its... More

Stayed here for two nights in the family room, two adults and two children. While the place is not super-perfect, it was so well-equipped with superb quality bedding and lots and lots of thick fluffy towels (even face-cloths). There were high quality biscuits and a bottle of water too. The breakfast was really good quality, and there was hot chocolate... More
