"Rooms at the front may be a little noisy on Friday thanks to the local market - to us it was local colour. Rooms to the back, quieter."
"The first floor apartments are masonette style so there are quite steep stairs to the bedroom and bathroom"
"In spite of steep staircase, I would recommend a room with a view"
"some rooms are on one level , some are maisonette style. They are all spacious."
"They are all good"
