We found Barclay House perfect and Charlotte most hospitable. We arrived early (7.30 am) supposedly to leave our bags, but Charlotte gave us a super early check in which was appreciated as we had been traveling 22 hours. There were so many small thoughtful touches. The small kitchen worked well and the coffee great.
I have recommended Barclay House to friends and would definitely stay again
