3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The room was lovely, well cleaned and looked amazing. Large king size bed, tall ceilings, bathroom was gorgeous too, but the main issue was noise. The room we unfortunately had was both close to the front door and on the side which faced the road. There was no double glazing and the room was very poorly insulated against sound. We could hear people walking outside the window to the street and cars which frequently went past were very loud. It meant even though we went to sleep at 1am/5am both nights, we had a terrible quality of a nights sleep that means I cannot recommend this property. After a terrible first night sleep the room was cleaned whilst we were out, however they left us with one towel instead of two, and although we drank all the coffees provided (after a terrible nights sleep) these weren't replenished. High expectations on a lovely room, but won't return when visiting again.

Liked: Room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Less than ideal. Only given 1 set of towels in the bathroom, kettle was not washed , as it was still a third filled with water fr previous occupant. It was comfortable stay but let down by shoddy housekeeping.

Great location
Very luxurious room and complementary drink on arrival at the canny mans . Only down side is no breakfast provided and parking postcode could be amended to road where car park is . There are plenty of places to get a breakfast if needed though and it’s a 30/40 minute walk into centre . Or £6/£8 in an Uber . Nice walk though with plenty of shops to browse . Canny mans nice cosy pub with lots of curios to look at as well .
