        Lovely accommodation. Comfortable size room which was neat and clean. There was a pet with the handheld shower and there was no one to report it to as they don't have a reception. There also isn't an enclosed wardrobe so clothes can look a little untidy hung on the open hanging space. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would us it again.

        The shower head could only provide scalding hot water during my visit (winter). Luckily, it was absolutely cold and rainy so I gave shower a miss in the morning. I wish the heater could be more flexible and give other than scalding hot water to bathe.

        Very disappointed ”

        I don’t think you will book hotel with no free wifi, do you ? I booked this hotel from good location. Upon our check in with the only staff at reception, hetold me that wifi costed 3 £. Hotel had no elevator, and had very small stairs. So, if you checked in with big luggages you would be struggling. During our stay, a lady locked herself out quite early in the morning, took her quote long time to find missing reception and gave her somehelp.

        Not what we expected”

        From the description on the website we booked this believing we were staying in a hotel when in fact it was more of an upmarket hostel with an obvious appeal to worldwide travellers. On arrival we were urged to leave our bags in the entrance hall and were quickly ushered in to a downstairs room to check in. The receptionist was helpful by giving us a room on the entrance floor to save us having to carry our heavy bags upstairs but this proved to be a mistake. Though we were told to keep noise to a minimum after 22:00, which we did, it seemed others did not understand and held full blown conversations in the hallway throughout the night. The doorbell sounded often and as if that wasn't enough, we were woken by someone trying to get in to our room. Despite us shouting that the room was occupied and they had the wrong one, they persistently attempted to open the door using their key. The bed was OK, not the comfiest and we had just one flimsy pillow each. We would not return.
