Positive Reviews

Your hosts will make you feel right at home

The owners of The Farthings are really attentive and will meet you with a very warm reception During your stay, nothing will be too much trouble for them You'll feel relaxed and at ease throughout.

There's nothing like a hearty start to the day

The breakfast at this guesthouse is simply superb There is so much to choose from that you'll definitely find something which will take your fancy It'll taste delicious too and will set you up nicely for the day.

Everywhere is accessible on foot

Assuming you don't think a ten-minute walk is too far, you can see almost everything of interest without the need for a car Happily though, despite its excellent location, the hotel is in a very quiet residential area.

You'll sleep like a baby

As well as there being little noise to keep you awake, you'll find real comfort in the beds So a good night's rest is almost a certainty.

Negative Reviews

You don't get your own bathroom

Having a communal bathroom and toilet can be a bit of a pain, but it's something you'll have to put up with if you're staying at The Farthings You'll likely be required to share with the rest of your floor.

The internet can be troublesome

The Wi-Fi can be a little temperamental in the guestrooms It tends to drop out at times, which doesn't take long to get annoying If this happens, you can head down to the breakfast room, where the connection is good.

Size isn't everything, but

A couple of things at this guesthouse could be bigger Firstly, some of the TVs in guestrooms are quite small Secondly, the showers can be quite cramped and there's not much room to manoeuvrer once you are in there.
