Length of our stay: 4 days
Room: Myself and two others stayed in a standard room (not inside the house). They are clean, spacious motel-style rooms equipped with the necessities and comforts of home. If you're nostalgic like me you'll love the retro vibe, especially the carpeted walls....yes, I said carpeted walls people. I'm not sure if it was just specific to our room (no. 20) but the pipes of the two rooms on either side of us were so loud when someone was taking a shower. It was like waking up in a construction site every morning. Hope this isn't the case with all of the other rooms.
Location: If you have a car, not a problem. If you're on foot, get the information from reception about bus timetables -there is a stop close by to the hotel and you'll need it if you don't like walking up hills. Nice quiet suburban street...hardly any noise.
Staff: Incredibly helpful, very knowledgeable about the city and local area.
Housekeeping: Our room was straightened up every day and we had tea/coffee supplies replenished daily. An interesting point is that despite a notice in the bathroom about conserving water by not requesting new towels everyday housekeeping would still do so. We placed our towels neatly on the racks as instructed (so they wouldn't be replaced) yet every time we came back at the end of the day there were new towels...confusing and water wasting.
Highlight: The Italian restaurant a short walk away has delicious food.
Not so great: The smoking permitted just outside the rooms. The smoke blows straight under the doors into the rooms and with the 'carpeted everything' inside, the smell gets absorbed and hangs around for ages..when you have allergies or asthma like me, the coughing marathons begin.
Would i stay there again? Yes, but i think i'd prefer being inside the house, rather than in a standard room.
