The guest house gets its business from the airport but makes no concessions to anyone who's flights are delayed so if you are not there by 11 you are looked out. I booked because there was a shuttle bus advertised but that was not true the taxi firm was reluctant to take me as they have had experience of guests not being admitted after 11. The taxi fare at night is 8 pounds and 6 in the morning so I would have been better stay at better location.
The owner told me he had to have an 11 o'clock closing at he need to get to bed as he was up early the next day, he keep me talking for 45 mins complaining about his guest and them being late, so the time was 12.00 before I got to my room. I rest my case, avoid.
