On the day of my check-in I received a personal SMS from the owner, Zenda, confirming my stay. I was shown to my room by a friendly staff member and the room was excellent value-for-money.
Bedding was clean and the mattress slept very well. The shower had great water pressure and maintained a constant temperature. The room was spacious and comfortable.
The location is also great, close to shops and restaurants and on a main road, making ti easy to get in to the city for business. I would also recommend Chimneys for a couples retreat.
I forgot my phone charger in the room and Zenda promptly posted it to me, saving me the cost fo replacing it.
Unfortunately I did not have time to join Zenda for breakfast, but the breakfast room looked inviting and the smells from the kitchen were very appetising.
