My room with shared toilet was clean and had everything I needed. The location was excellent, about a ten minute walk to the centre of town and the guesthouse is right on the river. Unfortunately, I could hear everything going on in the adjacent room and the rooms upstairs. I wish they would OIL the doors too. Doors squeaked very loudly and slammed shut. I probably would not stay there again.

While location was prime, near the castle, trains and on the river, it was difficult to get in touch with staff when I had an enquiry. The intercom was out of order, emails went un answered and the number to call to speak to someone rang out. I couldn’t even find a staff emmener on site. Also, when booking, it wasn’t made clear there wasn’t a private bathroom and that I would have to share with another guest, a fact I would have liked knowing about prior to booking so I could be prepared for that. Room was small but suitable for my stay, common areas like hallways always had a unpleasant smell to them, like an unclean smell.

I usually stay at the Anchorage but have been put in Austins for my last visits. Are usually stay three times a month. Both guest houses are clean and I find a good value for your money. The location is good for me except that they do not have a bicycle park nearby. I definitely recommend it for the eco-traveller meaning economy traveller

I have stayed at Austins many times the rooms are always warm and clean the beds are very comfortable and it is perfectly situated for the train and coach station. Austins is also very close to the town shopping centre its only a short walk away i would highly recommend staying here.
