10/10 Exceptional

The property is not a five star hotel but it is very comfortable and was perfect for my stay. I felt at home there. I met both of the owners and they are both very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely stay there again.

6/10 Good

The building moans and groans as you walk up the dark stairs. It looks and smells old. The breakfast looked sad, so we opted for muffins at the nearby Humble Bean instead. The owner was great however.

2/10 Poor

Thought we were going to fall through the floors. Spiders in the rooms. Ancient rooms. Will only stay in the chain hotels from now on. Lovely old man at front desk who tried his best but check in was painfully slow and he appeared to have difficulty navigating the process electronically
