    Small rooms, toast cost 4GBP and a small hot breakfast was even more. Mediocre place.

    Don't Reserve Here

    Although not noted, it must be under new management. I had a King Bed, Garden view room confirmed with Hotels.com, but got a Double Bed or Queen in the basement with a view of a wall. When I pointed this out, the manager all of the sudden did not understand English very well and would not make any accommodation.

    The location was quiet and pleasant, and the room very good value for the price. Breakfast was prompt and enjoyable. I was a shade disappointed that the tea and milk were not replenished during my four-night stay, resulting in having to provide my own.
