Positive Reviews

Convenient central location

Guests consistently rated the location of this inn as excellent, often describing how the property was within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and attractions. Furthermore, travellers who visited without a car often commented that they had no problems exploring the city on foot.

Clean and comfortable rooms

The quality of the rooms here impressed guests, who felt that the refurbishment of the accommodation was a success since it offered a clean and comfortable environment that was perfectly suitable for a city break. Guests welcomed the free Wi-Fi and also praised the pleasant ambience throughout the property.

Enjoyable breakfast and meals

Breakfast and other meals served in the pub proved enjoyable for guests. Many appreciated being able to choose between a continental and full English breakfast each morning. Diners who had lunch and dinner in the pub also commented favourably on the quality of the food and service.

Negative Reviews

Can be noisy at night

The central location here proved popular but guest reviews indicated that it did sometimes leave the rooms at the mercy of noise from the street. It seems that some rooms were more affected by this than others so light sleepers may wish to request a room at the rear of the property.

Parking may prove challenging

Although guests could easily arrange for a parking permit entitling them to leave their vehicle on nearby streets, finding a space proved to be a little challenging for some drivers at busy times.

A few minor complaints

Since there wasn't a lift, tackling the stairs at this property proved problematic for some reviewers with limited mobility. There were also claims from guests that some of the rooms and bathrooms were rather small.
