Ideally placed if you need to go to the Medical School or Queen Elizabeth Hospital (walking distance). I was travelling alone, Ray and Lynne were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble (needed help with door, food, phone calls to errant taxi drivers). I chose to have dinner in my room on night 1 - as a vegetarian I have low expectations, the 3 course meal delivered to my room was delicious. The staff are friendly and helpful. I stayed in the room overlooking the garden and pool - very restful. The spacious room and spotless bathroom could not be faulted. I needed to leave at 05:45 and they organized me transport. Overall great value for money compared to similar, made a 5 star experience by the thoughtful hosts and friendly staff. Only complaint was that I never got to see Daisy the garden inhabitant who hid away the whole time I was there :(.
