4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room, whilst small, was cozy and the bed was comfortable. The garden was also quiet and really nice to sit in at the end of the day. The only problem was the walls were very thin and you could hear everything from the upstairs room which made it hard to sleep with noisy guests.

Right in the heart of everything
Really close to everything. So cute and quaint and the owners were very friendly and helpful when we got lost 😂. 100% would stay again.

A delightful little nook
Cute little place off the quaint pedestrian streets. It is very very small ( you could only get to one side of the smallish double bed ) and sits off a little courtyard so not a conventional hotel. The area is great, it's close to the steps up to the abbey. The quality of the decor and furnishings was very good. No breakfast but a kettle and fresh coffee is provided and an excellent " hipster type" bakery about 50 yds away on the street.
