We only stayed for 1 night and had a very nice stay. Located 15-20min walk from town, The Stables is a nice distance away from any noise.
A huge bonus for us was that The Stables is pet friendly, on request, and our room was nice a spacious - so rooms for the dogs beds too!
There is a common area with a TV and books, just off the breakfast room - so no dogs allowed there. The rooms are within earshot so any 'grumblings' from furry kids can be heard and monitored.
Breakfast is a relaxed affair in buffet style with the option of a cooked breakfast if you're hungry.
Lovely walks not too far away - we walked the dogs along the river and in the woods behind the University.
Excellent security in the area, I think I saw 5 patrol cars within the space of 2 hours!
Ricardo was an excellent host, ensuring that we were comfortable.
Rooms were well heated and tea and coffee facilities were provided - we took our own milk but I am sure it is provided if requested.
All in all excellent value, clean, comfortable, warm and friendly.
We would happily recommend The Stables.
