The room itself was smaller than I expected, the carpet and bed headboard were stained and require cleaning, however the bed was comfotable and linen clean...

If anything it needs to be updated - yes there was a flatscreen tv with freeview as advertised, however this was around 4 metres from our bed and being 19inch we...

Hi Kat, thanks for your review. Our write up does not describe our rooms as quirky, I'm not sure where you got this information but definitely not from our website which is the only write up I myself have written. If you read our welcome email, sent out as you book, we mention all access problems, thus giving the booker...
