“Dated decor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2007

Location is excellent, room and bathroom spacious. Breakfast and service is fine. It is advertised as a boutique hotel, but the dated and somewhat cluttered decor stretches this description. Think 'changing rooms 2003' to get an idea of the style. Paint effect walls and fancy drapes, together with 10(!!!) animal print cushions in the room, are intended to hint at safari. Public areas are paint effect panelling and dado. Now looking tired. Restaurant was not open when we were there in August. Nothing to this effect on the web site. Never saw our host Neil. Apparently he had moved on to another project. The young lady on reception was lovely and so helpful, but it had the feel of hotel rather than guest house. There was nothing personal about the service. We were given a map and major landmarks and restaurants pointed out to us.

  • Liked — central location
  • Disliked — tepid shower water in the morning. Water was hot at night but appeared to run out by the morning.

Had two nights here and it was excellent for the price we paid.
It was very clean, breakfast was good, service was great and helpful.

Centrally located and safe to walk at night to and from.

Although booked 6 weeks in advance and confirmed by credit card we had to hear on arrival in the early afternoon of a Friday that our 2 rooms, due to a dubious double booking were not available. Easy to guess that the avaricious owner preferred to rent to somebody else for the whole weekend.
