The room was stuffy because you couldn't open the windows, so you had to turn the air con on for air. And there was no fan in the bathroom, so kinda awkward if you're on a romantic stay with a new partner and no privacy in the toilet! Apart from that it was good. The room was nice and the bed was comfy. Staff were really helpful and looked after our bags for the day after check out.

Pros-Great location, friendly staff, clean bedroom and bathroom, self serve breakfast- cereal and toast Cons- Make sure you bring/buy earplugs (you are above a pub that is open until 3am). I had thought all the loud music and noise was coming from the pub but I think other surrounding areas contributed to this. My room was very poorly insulated from sound.

The property is quite out dated and we found cockroach in the room during our stay. The another issue is the room is full of smell of chemical. We feel quite disppointed for the room condition.

I was initially placed in room 1, the TV did not work so asked the staff in the pub to change my room, which they did without any problem. Room 1 also had a toilet cistern that did not completely shut off. This created constant water flow into the sewerage system. Seems they had a Bell Pressure system to deal with pushing the waste into the council sewers. The constant water flow caused this to thump about every two to three minutes throughout the night. Disruptive sleep resulted on two nights. The thumping could be heard through their small accommodation area.
