On arrival we entered what we thought was a rather dark,narrow and uninviting reception area,the lady that greeted us was friendly enough.It would have been useful to have warned us prior to or at the time of booking that our room was on the third floor with no lift.Had either my wife or I been elderly or infirm we would not have been able to get to our room due to the 3 long and steep flights of stairs. The room itself was ok and clean.The shower does need running for a good while before any hot water comes through and the décor in the bathroom aswell as the whole Guest house,could do with bringing into the 21st century,as I said,it's clean but very dated. The breakfast was nice and fresh with good quality products but in my opinion(I eat well)the breakfast itself was quite small.Yes,you can fill up on cereals if that's what you like,but I don't. The bulbs in this place are all the energy saving type and sadly don't improve how dull the place is,a few bright lights would make an heck of a difference,especially in our shower that had no window.
My advice to anybody booking here would be to ask what floor your room is on,ours was 301,3rd floor,before booking,because if your elderly,disabled or infirm you'll struggle like heck.
In summary,very basic,clean Bed and Breakfast,but would not stop here until it was updated and improved.
Wi-Fi in all rooms and of good quality.
