"Each room has an individual character of its own. Wonky floors. Wonky walls. This adds to the charm"

"Enquiry about car parking The front rooms are on the high street and could be noise in the evening"

"Central location means all rooms are subject to noise from parties, discos, etc. Earplugs helped!"
