However, am not sure I'll bring him...

Me and my other half stayed here for two nights over the weekend and we're really glad this is where we chose! It was cosy, comfy and so peaceful on the little quiet residential street it's located. We felt really safe and only a 10-15 minute walk to the centre, you can't fault the location. There's also some lovely looking...

Wonderful location only 10/15 minutes from the city centre. Lovely decorated and quirky room - delightful wall paper. Breakfast included was a great way to start the day. Very friendly staff would highly recommend and definitely would go back :)
