Pretty heritage area location near town centre

Negative Reviews


Minor cleanliness and maintenance issues

Although most visitors said their rooms were well-cleaned, some critics said they encountered certain bathrooms that could have been more comprehensively cleaned. Maintenance issues were also reported in some rooms such as dated decor and tired-looking furniture plus aging mattresses and door locks.


Car park was tricky to locate for some

Drivers welcomed the free parking, although some first-time visitors initially struggled to find the car park due to a one-way traffic system in operation nearby.


Obstacles to sleep reported

Some light sleepers claimed noisy plumbing or noise from neighbouring rooms sometimes proved to be easily audible. Moreover, there were claims that curtains in certain rooms failed to fully exclude external light.
