Fantastic location but if there were to be upgrades in future, modernising bathrooms and double glazing to help with noise reduction from the street would certainly lift the property.

I really appreciated being able to get a late check out and being able to leave my car there for the afternoon after checking out. I also appreciated the heating being on and the room warm when I got there. The shower was terrible though the water temp went from hot to cold and back again was hard to shower.

Great stay in a spacious room with good kitchenette facilities. Large TV with Netflix and good heating. The kitchen hot tap dripped and the shower temperature would vary widely which was a bit dangerous. But we would definitely stay again as it was good having a separate bedroom to put our toddler to sleep in early in the provided portacot. Thank you for your hospitality.

Very nice, clean room and everything you need is thoughtfully provided. Convenient location in walking distance to "everywhere". As a final bonus the heating was turned on for our arrival, what a lovely touch. Thank you Brendan! We enjoyed our stay and can only recommend it.
