First impressions when we arrive, pretty from the outside but was much smaller than expected when we walked in. The lady owner who was the only person we met was lovely! Really helpful, friendly and made us feel welcome. The room I admit was very small, there were two chairs which weren't really needed and took up lots of space. Only storage space in the room was a small wardrobe so we had to put some clothes on a large window sill. However, the decor was nice, good facilities such as ipad, large tv and lovely bathroom (bit small though.) Our room was only standard but was still quite a bit of money for the space we were given. The location is a good walking distance to the shops and restaurants but walking back at night is scary and I'm used to Manchester, UK and I was still a bit scared. There are lots of men hanging around the streets and drinking. It's not really the hotel's fault but just a warning to people who aren't used to it.
Also, the bathroom door had big scratches on it and the paint work had all come off it.
We really enjoyed our stay though and would probably stay again.
