I stayed here for 3 nights whilst attending a training course at the university. The welcome was warm and friendly, and all the staff I came into contact with were friendly and polite, without being over-familiar. As a lone traveller I felt safe here, more so than in a large nameless chain hotel.
I had a room at the back (6) and it was quiet, with a view over the garden. I did have to walk up and down quite a lot of stairs and corridors to get to the room, which may make it unsuitable for some. The smell of breakfast cooking was overwhelming in the room from about 7am which actually may make some hungry, but made me feel a bit sick! I did eat in the restaurant one evening and the food and service were very good. There were a few tables in the gardens too.
My main issue was that the room and bathroom were not really very clean. The skirting boards were covered in dust and there were numerous cobwebs on the ceilings. I also found a scarf, belonging to a previous resident, behind a chair, which suggests that the chair had not been moved to Hoover the floor. Oh, and the creaky floorboards in the bedroom and bathroom near drove me to distraction!
All in all, the Elizabeth house was ok, and has a lot of potential, just needs a bit more TLC.
