3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Good: Great location, in the city centre. Efficient entry system (keys in lock boxes). Tea and coffee in room. Shared kitchen is great and shower rooms were clean. Property was very warm throughout. Email from owner the night before our stay was informative and provided all necessary information. Not so good: The ceiling and walls of our room were very thin and did not absorb sound well, meaning we were kept up because of scrapes/bangs, people opening doors etc. I know it's not easy to fix but it affected our stay as we simply did not sleep well (and we are heavy sleepers!). I sent a message to the guesthouse owners, who said that they contacted the people in the room above - unfortunately, it only stopped the noise for one night. On a side note, we stayed a week and the room was not serviced at all (it states in the listing that rooms are serviced once per stay). I did ask for some fresh towels midweek and they were delivered the next day.
