I booked online for a single room and told them I would be arriving at 4pm, there was no-one in at that time, so I returned at 5.30pm and was met by the owner. Entering I found the hallway and stairway were full of paintings and railway signs, it made for a rather claustaphobic feel to the place. I was shown to a family room with a double bed, single bed and a folded up futon in front of the sink this made it difficult to get to the sink to brush my teeth! The single bed had been made but the sheets had not been ironed although they smelt fresh. The shared bathroom was down four stairs and up two VERY steep stairs with no hand rail to assist, I found this quite difficult to manage espeicially in the middle of the night. Also rather disconcerting was the fact that the waste pipes from the rooms around went through my bedroom and as I was just about to fall off to sleep it sounded like water cascading down the wall and rushing into the pipes by the side of the single bed were I was. The breakfast room was interesting as it contained three tables, one for 6 people and two for three people, a breakfast bar, TV and a fridge for the jams and marmalades. The room was not large and the waitress had to push past me to get to the jams and marmalades in the fridge to replenish the tables, she apologised and said that "the fridge used to be in the kitchen which had been much better" that made a lot of sense. I sat at a table for three and my setting was for full breakfast. This included a cup on a small plate (not saucer) and underneath them a side plate which was chipped. When I had eaten breakfast and was ready for my toast, I found the side plate to be dirty too. I left my keys on the table and departed. I would not recommend this place to anyone else, which was a shame as the pictures look really nice on the website.
