“Comfy but basic and overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

Homely and welcoming owners, but be warned it's BASIC. The bathroom is the smallest ever, I am small-build, but found it impossible to use the toilet/shower without banging into the door/wall. Good location but would not recommend it at this hiked price.
