's Trip
Found the place okay, there seems to be a few B & B's, plus Hotels down this road. Self check-in, so no one to talk to(there is a button to push), our room was in the basement, with a window facing the car park(if you looked up), there is room for 5/6 cars on the front if parked correctly, the room had the usual facilities, tea/coffee/TV etc, queen size bed. if you want breakfast this means a trail down to #16 down on the opposite of the road(we didnt partake) The Town is a 1.5 ile walk, or bus ride away. Would I stay again, unsure as above there are plenty of others in the streeet which could offer a better deal

Exceptional 10.0
Great place to stay.
Hotel was very clean and tidy. Room No1 on ground floor looks out over back garden where we watched 4 baby foxes playing. Staff were polite. Breakfast good. Parking is limited but if you ask the owner ( who is sooo nice ) he juggles things around so you won’t be blocked in when it’s time to go home. Hotel situated a half hour stroll to city centre. All in all we would recommend this property and the price

A great stay at Allison house 17
For me everything was perfect and I liked it a lot. Two remarks : 1.It was written that “breakfast is available “ but there was no breakfast and you should correct it . 2.I stayed for 8 nights without seeing any manager or owner. I think they can come once to see if everything is ok.
