I can't recommend this place highly enough. It's located in a neighborhood outside of the downtown area, which is actually nice to be in a more quiet, quaint neighborhood. It is less than a minute walk from the bus station to get to/from downtown, which is very convenient.
The rooms are clean, comfortable, and quiet. I had my own spacious bathroom and a little patio to look out on. I felt like I was in a close friend's house. You can choose which breakfast you want each morning, and the food was DELICIOUS! I only paid 45 pounds/night for my single room, which is really affordable.
Jim and Olive knew I was traveling alone, so they were extra sweet and helpful. They packed me a sack lunch the morning I left since my flight was at 6am.
I would highly recommend staying here, especially if you are looking for a warm, comforting, nice place that feels like a friend's home.
