Guest Reviews

Overall rating: 4.3 out of 5
 Arrived to meet Richard, very welcoming and told us anything needed just to ask. Gave us tips on where to go and places to visit. Tea and coffee facilities were great. Great nights sleep and a very quiet area. Location was suited only 10 minute walk from train station in new town. Had everything around you that is needed. A pleasant walk into new or old town where you find a more lively place. Would recommend and would definetly stay again.
