  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Everyone on the staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the owner Mike. Check in was fast and easy and I was shown around the property. Room was clean, good facilitators, they even offer you bikes to use. Great location, walkable to everything in town. Nice bar and restaurant on the main floor, offering good food and drink specials.

    The character and charm of the hotel was lovely. Proximity to town great - not too close but not fr to walk. Parking good. Staff friendly and helpful. Expected tea and coffee making facility for the price plus a mini fridge. Did not expect the room to be included in back packer arrangements ie use of kitchen facilities but nothing provided in the room. I am disappointed that after emailing to ask if Id left an expensive, special pashmina scarf behind, they did not even reply.

    Need a hairdryer and jug, cups in the room. Might be time to fix the hole in the carpet as this is a trip hazard at night
