Though we booked quite last minute and for only 1 night, I thought I would add a review as some people have been a little harsh in theirs.
Yes its on the main road so noise could be an issue, and there is no double glazing- its an old building with character. We took earplugs and slept well.
Parking: we managed to unload in the 1 hr bay across the road and then moved our car to the free on street parking which is available within a few minutes walk down a side street. Its not that hard.
We were in room 1 which though large with 1 double and a single bed in, has a private bathroom down the hall rather than ensuite. I had noticed this on the website, and took a small robe just in case we got this room, so no awkward moments going to the bathroom.
The room we had was very tastefully decorated. Would have been nice to have a small chair or stool by the dressing table when drying my hair. Couldnt find the tv remote, but the tv worked fine- button on the tv itself did the job. We didnt report it as we were hardly in our room that much and it didnt affect us.
Breakfast was fine. I think it makes senses having it in the cafe, whats wrong with that? The staff on duty were very polite. No issues at all.
Its in a great location and is good value for money and very clean.
