“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Found this hotel affordable, well maintained and clean. Though I had booked a single room, was given a double at no extra cost. The owner was polite, pleasant, and hospitable. The breakfast was served promptly at 7 AM and was good value. As a woman travelling on her own, I had a comfortable and safe stay. I had left my ipad charger in my room when I left and the owner very kindly mailed it to me without any charge. Will definitely stay here again and will recommend this place to my friends.

We were lucky to find this place in the last minute. It is one of the cosiest hotels I have ever stayed in - very traditional, with modern hints in the rooms. It was extremely clean and tidy and the hosts were kind and welcoming. Very close to city centre so convenience is another asset. Amazing value for money, highly recommend it.

We were a bit shocked when we first arrived at this hotel as the entrance was from the back of the hotel through the car park at the back. Luckily, we had been advised that it was a bus lane in front of the hotel and we would have sustained a fine for parking at the front.

Initially, we were greeted by the owner, Tony, who asked us to sign the visitors book. We loved the fact that he trusted us enough not to take our credit card immediately. He gave us a single old-fashioned key to room 16 and then helped us with our bags upstairs.

The rooms were spacious, clean and modern for such an old residence. I had to ask for a hair dryer but that was no problem. My husband and I both commented that this hotel provided the best sleep of all hotels we had stayed in the six hotels we had stayed so far on our trip. I am not sure whether it was the block-out curtains or the hard beds but we were very grateful.

It was lovely to see Tony, the owner, making breakfast himself. He was a fascinating man - a philosopher who had a Master's degree in that field and, also, a qualified engineer. He told us that he enjoyed running the hotel and meeting people the best of all his career choices.

We were lucky to have a quiet room at the back of the hotel as it was on a busy street but the value for such comfort was excellent. We would stay her again.

Room Tip: room 16 or a room at the back of the hotel.

Dear Sir and Madam,

It was a pleasure to meet you and have such interesting conversations with you both!

We hope that the rest of your European tour went well and that you were comfortable and entertained throughout.

I would like to personally thank you for your wonderful and detailed review.

We do try our best to make all our guests feel wanted, comfortable and safe. We differ from many chain hotels, particularly in the city centre (we are ½ mile from the centre), in that we value your peace and quiet and are personally on hand to help and advise you.

We are thrilled that you comment so favourably on our cleanliness, friendliness and comfort.

We would be delighted to have you stay with us again.

Our kindest regards

Had booked for the evening of the 29th June 2013 travelled over 100 miles only to be told that there was no room available and that the mother of the manager had become confused my booking because two people of the same name had been booked!! it all boils down to mismanagement and personally i therefore would not reccomend this guest house.

Room Tip: try nearby guest houses.

Dear Sir,

We are extremely sorry that we had inadvertently over-booked you for the night in question and apologize again to you for our mistake.

What your comments fail to acknowledge, however, is that we apologized profusely to you at the time and found you alternative accommodation of the same standard in a nearby establishment with the minimum of inconvenience to yourselves.
The customer unfortunately was not able to experience our hospitality this time and we find it unfortunate that he does not recommend us, having neither set foot in our hotel nor actually having stayed with us.

Mr and Mrs Tanes were perfect hosts. They made me feel at home and went out of their way to help me with a problem I had with my luggage. The staff were friendly and the breakfasts were delicious. I couldn't fault the cleanliness of the hotel and would definitely stay there again.
