“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

We only stayed for the one night, the welcome was very friendly, the room and bathroom not overlarge but very comfy and cosy. Have travelled a lot and stayed in very many B&B's, this one is the most well equipped I have come across, there was even a floor stang fan, iron and ironing board. The only downside is that the stairs are quite steep, but well worth the climb. Would definately stay again. Free parking was awelcom bonus.

Room Tip: rooms on upper floor are up quite steep stairs, ask for a 1st floor room if you don't think you...

This was one that looked promising on the booking page, but I could not have anticipated how wonderful it actually was. The greeting by the owner was most friendly and courteous, even switched rooms for me to accomodate my difficulty climbing multiple flights of stairs. The room was ample and bright with lovely decorations; not at all overstated, just comfortable and comforting.

A special delight was Susie, the evening attendant, who recommended a good choice of restaurants according to my expressed menu desires. I favored one of her recommendations so much that I brought back a menu for them to offer to subsequent guests.

The quality of service here is unsurpassed and the "full English" breakfast was so abundant -- and good! -- that I fared well throughout the rest of the day.

Price is highly reasonable and the service and quality could hardly be better. Thanks to all at Sydney House!

Room Tip: Just ask according to your need -- they'll take good care of you!

We stayed for two nights and found the hotel very good with reasonable rates. The breakfast was excellent- good choice and generous portions. It's convenient for the town centre - about 10-15 minute walk along the riverside, so not far to go for a meal in the evenings. The bedroom we had was of adequate size and had all ther facilities needed to help make the stay more comfortable.
We had one slight issue but this was resolved very satisfactorily by the owner Alistair Coltman.
Highly recommended.

The cleanliness of the room and bathroom stood out so much I had to start my review with it! Other that that, I loved the location just 5 minutes walk from the railway station and a picturesque riverside is a part of that walk, the breakfast is hot and fresh with ample amounts of food, service is friendly and attentive, and my first floor room was so quiet and cosy I slept for 10 hours straight for the first time in many months! I can probably see why someone could consider the room small, but I've been around the UK enough to know that even the most expensive hotel rooms there are pretty small compared to what you would find in countries such as the USA, Greece, Canada, etc. The room was comfortable enough for me and I'm considerably bigger than the average guy.

Room Tip: Although I was pretty comfortable in my room, they told me that if I book early I have a better chan...

If you are looking for a good guest house in the area, this is the best.
Staff are helpful, breakfast very nice.
Rooms are a little small and up quite steep stairs but are cery well appointed.
Its in super position and is worth every penny, highly recommended.

I stayed at Sydney house for 2 nights. I found my room clean and comfortable with clean linen and a decent sized bathroom. The staff were helpful and friendly. The free breakfast included in the room rate was more then fulfilling. Sydney house is just a short walk from the bus station, train station and town centre. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to travelling friends.
