What a gem of a location, picked because of the reviews on this site and we weren't let down one bit! lovely hotel, and we opted for the shared bathroon based on budget constraints and for our 5 nights never once did we clash with any guests for using the facilities, so worth bearing in mind if the budget is...

This is a lovely, small hotel with an exceptionally friendly staff, good parking arrangement, and plentiful continental breakfast. The rooms are small, but well appointed. Our only complaint was trafic noise at night. Bush is a busy street and SF a busy city. I would ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

I've read a number of the reviews of this hotel and it turns out that they are largely true. This is a delightlul place, the staff and owners truly are friendly and helpful, the cat Pip is calm and adds peace to the place (even though he is as aloof a cat as I have met) and the morning lady's...

This B&B is a gem. I was worried that it wouldn't be great, being that they are so popular. Nothing could be less true, the couple who run the B&B have kept the standards high. The place is charming. The rooms are on the smallish side, but decorated with taste. We had a room with shared bathroom. The room had...

We had to move round the corner from our previous hotel who couldn't accommodate us for our 4th night. We turned up early morning with suitcases and a very pleasant courteous young man took them to store for us as our room wasn't ready. When we arrived back late afternoon we were greeted by an older gentleman who took us...

A friend and I recently stayed here and it was just wonderful!
