Booked very last minute for a spontaneous trip. Excellent value for money given its central but quiet location. Surrounded by impressive architecture. Stayed in The Little Blue Room (street side) and with a seperate shared shower/bathroom which was very clean but up a few stairs from the room - just a warning! Check in and out very smooth and bed very comfortable.

This guest house is really quirky. Probably not for tall people as very low ceilings. I stayed in an en-suite room. Very clean and comfortable. Shower curtain could do with being replaced but other than that very good value for money. I slept very well. Breakfast included and was very tasty in the cafe at end of the street.
