Thin walls
Convenient but maybe a downside of not having staff on site is that guests feel freer to be noisy, and no-one to quieten them? I wasn’t too pleased by the 3 40 wake up with drama in the next room that went on for well over an hour

Not great. Doggy smell and fleas. Noisy.
I would not stay here again. It is pet-friendly so, if you don't have dogs, the smell of dog is overwhelming when you walk in. I also saw at least 5 fleas and I ended up with flea bites which was very upsetting. I didn't get the room I booked and the I was allocated a room on the ground floor, next to a busy road, so it was quite noisy. No hot water on the first morning but they did fix this when I reported it. Walking distance to local shops which was convenient and check in instructions were very good. I imagine that it is great for pet owners.

Self check in was straight forward, you get a message sent to your phone with front door code and another code to get your room key from a locker. Room was nice & comfortable, I liked that it was very dark. However being right next to the front door could hear a lot of coming and goings as well as doors slamming. Slept well despite since I use ear plugs.

Good but depends on room you stay in
Have stayed here previously but in a different room (9). The room I was allocated this time (16) was clean and fresh but the walls are very thin which meant I did not have a good night's sleep. The couple in the room next door seem to have had a lovely time though.....

Great Hotel
Lovely room. Clean and comfortable. Able to set heating to our own requirements, which for me is no heating. The bed was very comfortable, with two pillows each and extra cushions. Brilliant shower and nice hot water. Extras which were very much appreciated - ironing board, iron, clothes stand, hairdryer, kettle etc. The only thing I would have liked was a brighter main light as I found it difficult to see in the evening with the very dim lighting. This was just a small thing and I would definitely recommend and use this hotel again. Also lovely welcome message left by the owners. A very nicely run hotel with thoughtful touches by the owners.
