this place was lovely, the outside of the building is being completely renovated hence the untidy entrance and scafolding behind the building, but the inside is very modern and clean. my room (sunflower room) was the one with balcony and private external bathroom and both bed- and bath-rooms were very spacious, the bedroom had heating, paintings on the high ceilings and tv. the only negative thing was the noise from the street below in the morning, it is a main road and the windows are not double glazed. plus the trains go passed too. I chose this B&B because it's 6mins walk from the station, in between the town and the station really, ideal if you are on public transport. the reception must know what time you are arrrivng as there is nobody in the building and you pay on arrival (I didn't see her again). as in most B&B you can't pay by card because of the high bank charges. there was some sort of light breakfast offered by the hotel but since I was going off early she gave me a voucher for a nearby cafe. I ended up going to the café downstairs instead, the costa cafe, where they were very nice, the food was good and the prices were unbeatable. there seems to be a recuring problem with wi-fi in the B&B so I couldn't use the internet. however I would stay here again because despite the noisy street I slept well and liked the room. very good position in town.
