Not what I had in mind
ie8 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great location, approachable and dedicated owner
As a guesthouse it exceeded expectations. A very polite and approachable owner and the rooms were clean and well maintained. There was a slight fragrance that irritated me on arrival but was cleared with minimal ventilation. The only negative was noise pollution from other users of the building (a wedding party and a fighting couple), for which the owner has apologised and was clearly beyond his control. However I would recommend this place and realise my experience is somewhat atypical. I hope to visit again, perhaps in the summer!
