Im an easy going traveller, who is interested in head down, in a clean safe room and thats about as much as I ask. I can deal with not great furniture, shared bathrooms etc - with warning. But not when Im expecting more as from the photographs and description. We booked online and were happy with our cheap deal, as... More

On first arrival the place looks like your typical B&B, that is until you get to your room. The room (112) was very small, the bed was so rickety that rolling over in the night was only carried out if you were feeling brave, the one upright of the bed was so loose there was a 1/2" gap between it...

The walls are dirty, the carpet is stained, no light in shower, noise through thin windows off a busy street, small breakfast selection, hot stuffy rooms at night with no temp control, small double bed, smoke smell in hall. Just wished we had done room check and price check before we stayed really. Most of the staff are nice though.

This is a poor example of a B&B. It's more like a dilapidated backpackers. Just because you provide a bed and serve breakfast doesn't mean you can call yourself a B&B. As a well travelled 35 year old woman travelling alone, i felt unsafe and dirty. I was told it was a double with ensuite but it is a pokey... More

I stayed here from the 7-9th September in a ground floor, back room, no. 109, I think. Staff are generally helpful and friendly. My room was very small, with a small double bed, lamp, two towels and soap; television. There was no glass or wash-hand basin, though I could get wi-fi for my netbook most of the time. The room...

Stayed in the room right by the entrance. I was leery given previous accounts of the street noise and lack of heat, but the worst was that the walls and doors are paper thin and in the middle of the night even the desk attendant was so loud that we were awoken every few hours by slamming doors and him...

This is a very good B&B for a 2-star rated accommodation. Although the furniture and decor was old and outdated, it could easily be over-looked as everything was so clean! Beds were comfortable. You have easy access to the toilets (2-3) which were located on each floor, however, there were private showers /sinks in each of the rooms. Breakfast was... More

We booked this on a concert night it looked nice in the website. We were given a room at the top of the building up 3 flights of stairs. We booked a room with what was supposedly an en suite shower. This turned out to be a shower cubicle in the room... Yes right next to the bed.. Weird. There... More
