5/5 Excellent

4/5 Good

Bed broke along with few other things

It was great service and a nice place aswell as convience shopping wise however the were a few issues with our room for example the toilet seat was broken, the tap was broken aswell as the plug next to the bed was loose. On our last night there the bed woke us up as it had broken so we could no long sit on it or lie down. For the whole stay the bed was very squeaky so unsure if this was the reason why. However the staff and the place was nice just few issues that need fixing.

I really wanted to like our stay above this pub. The yoing man who showed us to our room was lovely, very helpful and efficient. The cotton sheets were crisp and good quality and the shower was excellent. Those were the good things. However, the room was extremely noisy with no insulation from the music from the pub below, the bedroom floor not clean enough to walk on in my bare feet, the bed was uncomfortable and, on a warm June evening, the window impossible to open. I'm sorry not to be able to leave a better review.

4/5 Good

Obviously work was being done mess everywhere at the front. Bedrooms surprisingly clean and tidy despite exterior of building. Staff friendly. Good idea with security codes. Bed very comfortable. Net curtains unstable. Felt exposed to people on buses looking through the window.
