              6.2

              Good location, friendly staff and nice breakfast.

              3% surcharge for using a debit card to pay for the room, also having to pay £5 for Wi-Fi when booking it states internet is free. room was rather cosy than deluxe

            • Older travelers
              4.6

              The only good thing I would say about this Guest House is that it is well located. It also provides limited car parking which is at a premium in this city.

              The room did not live up to the reviews we read, poor quality room with very small bathroom with noisy fan, bed was very uncomfortable, no wireless internet available as advertised, very average and plain breakfast provided, walls are so thin that any noise or conversation in the house was heard ( person heard praying loudly at 2.30am - 2 nights straight) and definately not worth the price charged.

            • Older travelers
              4.2

              Very overpriced for the facilties available. Room cramped and en suite tiny. Breakfast pedestrian

            • Single
              3.2

              Nice linen

              No sitting room; no feeling of welcome. Staff not too knowledgable of area. Place and decor is very dated. Thin walls, thin windows. If you close the windows at night, there is no fresh air. If you keep them open, you hear the double deckers. In the morning, you can smell the bacon from around 6:30am & the smell lingers in the room. Note the shared bathroom/ shower. It's 10 min bus journey to city centre. All in all, you might as well stay in a youth hostel in city centre.
