We were amazingly impressed to have stayed in a central guest house in a four-poster room for only £75, and I kept being paranoid that the price was actually per person! We stayed in Room 1, which contains a sink and shower, but has a toilet and bath in a separate bathroom. Both the room and bathroom were massive and felt very luxurious. The bath had a 'jacuzzi' option and the shower also had a fancy feature! At the same time, much of the furniture was quite dated and felt like it need'ed a bit of a revamp, but was perfectly acceptable for a night's stay.
We were especially impressed with the breakfast in the morning, which was above the standard breakfasts you find in B&Bs. The hosts had taken the time to make a beautiful fruit salad, presented with apricot yoghurt in its own glass bowl. There was a small selection of cereal, but everything was brought to the table so we didn't have to get up, and the cooked breakfast was very tasty.
Possibly the only downside to the hotel is that it is right above a railway line, and our room looked over the railway so it got quite noisy when trains went past. I managed to sleep perfectly fine, but light sleepers might find this a problem.
