Positive Reviews

Warm service from management.

Many reviewers were impressed with the service at the inn, particularly from the welcoming manager, who is mentioned by name on several occasions. Guests felt comfortable and at home during their stay, with very few able to fault this aspect of the hotel.

Delicious breakfast.

Guests agree the breakfast provided by the hotel was outstanding. There is a wide selection on offer including pastries and scones, and everything is of the best quality.

Close to city centre.

The walk to the city centre is reportedly pleasant and convenient, taking only a few minutes. Most guests mention the location as a positive characteristic of this hotel and say they would stay again.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathrooms not ideal.

Only two rooms at the hotel do not have an en-suite bathroom, with guests of these rooms required to use a shared bathroom. Reviews of these bathrooms say there are no adequate bathing facilities, which guests found to be a significant issue.

No cooked breakfast options.

Though most say the breakfast provided by the hotel is excellent, some point to the fact that there are no cooked options, which they disliked. A few guests felt this was poor value considering the room price.

Rooms too small for some.

A few reviewers found their room to be too small, particularly tall guests.
