We booked a 2 night stay to visit friends in the area. We opted for the twin room, as we are used to a super king size bed, and the only alternative was a standard double. The staff are all brilliant, and we really appreciated the relaxed and cheerful atmosphere. However, based on being a light sleeper, our room had the most squeaky floorboards in the universe...and just a short walk to the bathroom was enough to wake the dead. Our 2 nights cost £155 for bed and breakfast, yet despite being recently refurbished, there is no air conditioning .....even cheaper modern hotels have this as standard. It had been a beautiful day, with the sun shining directly into our room, so I opened the window, which overlooked the street. So, with the clock chiming every hour, the usual street noises, the bin collection at 5.30AM, and the high temperature of the bedroom, we sallied forth to our day feeling worn out and jaded. The receptionist promised us a fan for the forthcoming night, which helped a little, but really only blows warm air around....and makes a noise! If you like the quirks that are part of the character of the hotel....go ahead, but we will find something else, so that we get up ready and raring to go, rather than feel we have paid a lot for a poor nights sleep. And wifi was available if you were prepared to open an account with the cloud....so the options offered on Trip Advisor do not match the reality of free wifi.
