Positive Reviews

Extremely satisfying Full English breakfast

Aside from the plenty of choices for food, guests also loved the very quality of the dishes served. The Full English breakfast was praised by many reviewers, especially the crispy bacon and the perfectly cooked eggs.

Meticulous attention to in-room details

Guests loved that they had everything they need in their rooms. Meticulous attention to detail was kept in mind when preparing and furnishing the rooms. Everything in the room was spotless clean, the bed was perfectly made, and the parts of the room were well organised.

First-rate service is guaranteed!

The owners made the guests feel like part of their family with their warm welcome, extensive local knowledge, and attentiveness. They were always around if guests needed them, yet they weren't intrusive of the privacy of the occupants.

Negative Reviews

Traffic noise can easily enter the rooms

The traffic noise outside the establishment disturbed many guests, especially those who stayed at the quarters facing the streets. Other guests would have wanted to open their windows but weren't able to because it was too noisy outside.

Difficult and inadequate parking spaces

Parking spaces were a bit awkward because it was tight according to the guests who used it. In addition, a lot of them also experienced finding the parking space full, and had to be contented with the parking space over the next road.

Problematic bathroom fixtures

Previous guests noted that the bathroom exhaust fan was very noisy when turned on, and the lightning was too dark for shaving or brushing teeth. Other guests also felt that the bathrooms were too tiny for them.
