A last minute decision to stay as I was feeling a little down after knee op. Close to front --trams. Local pubs clubs nearby yet quiet at night for sleeping. Thoroughly enjoyed it and left much cheered up. Thanks again Phil and Julie!!

Brilliant time was had by all, lovely clean rooms and bathrooms. THE BEST breakfast you could ask for, lots to choose from. Phil and Julie make you feel so welcome and are just the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet, nothing is ever too much to ask of them. Can't wait to go and stay again.
