We are a family of 4 and stayed for 3 night. Excellent location, clean and the staff are all caring and attentive. Very good continental breakfast. Smoking area in the garden. Very helpful tips from the management.

Obviously the rooms have a modern refurb. I was in room 1 which is at the front of the residence and in their photos it is the black and white one. Stand out feature... a proper mug and recessed lighting. Bug point ... no teaspoon for the lovely mug. The continental breakfast was great too - very healthy. Good job.

Stayed in the basement room for one night.I couldn't believe how quiet it was for the city centre- absolutely no traffic noise. Clean and comfortable and very good breakfast. Amazing value. There are no windows in the room but who needs windows when you want to sleep!

Perfectly located b&b. Small but clean and nicely decorated rooms. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to everything. Walking distance to shops, pubs and restaurants. Was here with my mom and grandmother. They gave us two rooms next to each other even tho we forgot to write and ask for that when booking.

Stayed here for a weekend break and it was a really good stay, the room was very nice and had everything you could need, the shower could have done with some work though but it was a small detail, is some small faults were sorted it would be perfect but for the price and location I could not complain!!

The reviews on here seem mixed? I think maybe the new owner is doing up one room at a time? I was made to feel very welcome by the male receptionist who helped me with my bags, gave me maps, a cup of tea, and printed out a route planner of a place I mentioned I wanted to go to,...
