Positive Reviews

Good location

Although not in the heart of the city centre, guests report that ABC House is within easy reach of several public transport options, including a bus route direct into the city. For this short extra journey time, guests estimate that you'll pay around half the cost of a city centre hotel.

Basic but comfortable

Guests tend to be appreciative of the standard of the rooms here. Like many B&B's, the rooms are on the basic side but that doesn't stop guests feeling comfortable during their stay. The private bathroom is a nice touch, as are the comfortable beds.

Friendly hosts

Good service seems to be a top priority here. Guests report that the staff is proactive in ensuring everything goes smoothly. Contact before your stay to ensure you have the correct address and to arrange taxis if needed is not unusual. Plus, the staff provide recommendations for great dining and little-known attractions.

Negative Reviews

Mediocre Wi-Fi

A number of guests were disappointed by the Wi-Fi service in the common areas of the guesthouse, describing the strength of the signal as unreliable. A few others mention random disconnects. That said, not all guests encounter any problems.

Some reports of noise

Several guests mention that they found their stay at ABC House noisy. There's some traffic noise but probably not much more than you may hear at home. More noticeable noise issues are caused by thin walls between adjacent rooms and a hot water furnace in the garden.

Breakfast costs extra

Unlike many B&Bs, the breakfast here is not included in the room rate. This turns a budget-friendly room into a slightly more costly exercise. Guests note that you are automatically charged for breakfast, so if you choose to eat elsewhere like some previous guests, be sure to point that out to staff.
