When I say simple, this is no reflection on the quality of the guest house, it is a compliment to the fact that it is not complicated, because far too many make it a complicated business to run an efficient Guest House.
I stayed in room 3 on the first floor with an en-suite shower & sink, with the toilet next door being for my sole use.
The room was very clean with tea & coffee making facilities and a flat screen TV.
When I arrived I parked my car right outside, popped into reception and collected my car park pass (£2) and placed it on my dashboard.
I was shown to my room and given a breakfast menu to make my choices for the next morning.
There were juices, cereal, white or brown toast, fresh fruit, sausage, smoked bacon and also scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, which I had and it was a lovely change.
I must admit on arrival I did think that the whole Queens Crescent looked dreary and uninviting, but don't let this put you off, because the inside is quite grand.
The only niggle that I had was that I could not get any hot water out of the sink tap, no matter how long I ran it for, the shower was fine, but for some reason the hot tap on sink only produced cold water, I should have mentioned it to Graham or Leon, but when i went out to eat in the evening, I could not see them and forgot to mention it in the morning and being a minor niggle it didn't bother me anyway, plenty of hot water in kettle for shave.
Thank you Graham & Leon, for providing exactly what I expect, a good clean Guest House, comfortable & clean bed and a great choice for breakfast.
