Positive Reviews

Quiet location yet close to attractions.

The inn is tucked away on a quiet residential street which meant that guests could enjoy peaceful and tranquil evenings. Many appreciated being away from the hustle and bustle yet still within easy walking distance from many  of St Augustine’s popular attractions. As there is no restaurant on the premises, guests were pleased to find plenty of bars and cafes on their doorstep.

Full of history and old-world charm.

The building dates back to the 1800’s and many said that they felt like they had stepped back in time during their stay here. Guests appreciated many of the original period features such as the open fire places and solid wood floors.

Pleasant places to relax and unwind.

Guests thoroughly appreciated having access to their own private porches where they could relax with a glass of wine in the evenings whilst taking in the views.  The cosy and inviting lounge with comfortable sofas and an open fire was also attracted many guests who said that it was a great place to unwind and socialise.

Negative Reviews

Rooms in need of refurbishment.

Many said that the rooms were starting to show their age and objected to the rather tired looking decor which included stained carpets and marks on the walls. According to the guests, the rooms would benefit from a fresh lick of paint as well as some of the bathrooms.

Staffing issues.

Quite a few guests mentioned that they only saw the proprietors on a few occasions and often upon checking in there was no one to welcome the guests at the reception area.

Plumbing problems.

Guests reported several plumbing-related issues including weak water pressure which made showering rather cumbersome and having to wait for quite a while for the hot water to come through.
