Better lighting required
We enjoyed our stay, however we were allocated a room almost in the attic of the property which involved climbing up 2 flights of narrow stairs in dimly lit corridors with our luggage. It would have been extremely difficult for anyone with health or disability issues. Guests should be warned prior ro booking. Also, the room had no mirror in and so drying hair & applying make up etc was difficult. The ensuite shower room was very very dimly lit also which wasnt ideal. A couple of small touches could improve the room and guest experience immensely.

Nice place
Very clean room. But, bathroom was notcleaned thouroughly. Pubic hair in shower tray. Seperate toilet was not very big and not easy to use im 18st and six feet two ins. Lighting was very dim, ut looked like a spot light had been removed from ceiling. This made it difficult to see whilst making hot drinks and using desk. Road noise is a problem too. Windows are old sash type in kerping with the property. But nice comfortable bed and pillows. Shower is a nice big roomy one with two shower heads. Shame about the pubic hair. No on site parking, but over road a few parking spaces and another car park about 50 metres away. Both are charged between 8am and 6pm but free overnight. The charges are very reasonable 80p for 4 hours but whole day not much more.
