4 out of 5

Fabulous staff

Location: Easy to find. Good location. Close to many things.
On arrival I realized they hadn't received details of our requirement for 3 separate beds. (Best to book direct.) They ended up giving us a second room which was wonderful of them. Very accommodating staff. Some of the beds were less than comfortable. New mattress needed. Plumbing work required, but kind of expected in England. Fairly clean. I'd stay here again.
