Negative Reviews

Small rooms and bathrooms.

The room and bathroom sizes are variable and some of them are described as small and even cramped. Head height in the eaves is restricted. Some of the rooms are semi en suite and have a shared WC though all rooms have a shower.

Steep stairs.

The B&B has no lift and the rooms are ranged over three levels with some steep steps. Guests with heavy bags have found these difficult to navigate.
