Quiet location, excellent wifi signal, clean rooms. The on-site manager Steve went out of his way to help me when I needed to contact someone regarding car trouble. Free parking means free 2hr street parking. After 6pm it's free until 10 am the next day.

    Run down and no good

    This place is in a bad state. One of the worst places we have stayed and we have travelled to many places around the world. The cleanliness is atrocious - for one example the same "floor towels" in the showers were scrunched up and soaking for the whole 3 days that we were there (I DARE you to step on it). One previous review mentioned something about the blankets smelling like they hadn't been cleaned for a long time - we made the mistake to also smell them. I would advise against this (we used some blankets we had brought with us). There is no check in desk, so no-one there to greet you or to help out in any way. Only a phone in the corridor for you to speak with... someone. There is an "office", which was closed for most of the time that we were there. But the people that came out of there appeared to be cleaners/guests possibly staying rent free. Some people made a curry on the first night and left the kitchen in a complete state - dirty dishes and pots everywhere. And the kitchen wasn't adequately cleaned for our whole stay. Some of the windows are broken, and there are holes in various walls. The immediate area is empty, but it isn't too far from shops etc (but be prepared to walk at least 20 mins). The house itself is a nice old building, with a great garden. The sad thing is that with a bit of love, this could be a very nice place. But I feel it has been neglected for many years. Overall, do yourself a favour and look elsewhere.
