Dear Steve, Thank you for your honest review. Yes the showers are small, although it is an excellent shower as both powerful and plenty of water supply. The showers cubicle are designed to be smaller as we have limited space in this over 200 years old building. Although the advantage if this William Playfair Building is the high ceiling and...

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The owners are very welcoming. Our room was huge for a family of 3. The building is old but well-maintained and clean. Most importantly, it is close to almost all attractions. Recommended place!

The hotel is very close to many attractions and we had a very comfortable stay there. They have large rooms, good shower and nice breakfast (you can ask for other things from your table).

Dear Andy, Thank you for the very good review and you enjoyed our cooked breakfast prepared by our Chef. However the small showers are actually the size of a British Standard, only the cubicles make it look smaller. But we have also the very big Shower / Bath Room available for the guests to use at the lower grandfloor. We...

Stayed here for two nights and overall I found it to be quite pleasant. Greg was really nice and accommodating. He kindly helped us print out our flight tickets (this saved us from having to find and pay for a printing place in the city). Breakfast was very good, and he was also considerate with regards to our dietary requirements....

This bed and breakfast is perfectly located in the heart of the city centre, close to the main train station and airport tram. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and gave us wonderful advice in regards to things to do and see, and main directions. We received a nice complimentary Scottish breakfast and the room was clean and tidy,...

Ok, if you want a clean hotel with breakfast that is reasonably central in the high season, come here. It is not all that bad, but it is certainly not perfect. I guess it depends on how you look at it. cons: Squeaky floors, Tiny showers (just a cupboard) No elevator - so you have to drag your luggage up...

We are accustomed to staying in highly rated bed and breakfasts. We needed lodging for one night in this location.

“My room - number two - did have a squeaky floor, but it had a good wifi connection the whole time I was there. It was a little noisy, being beside the road. It had one double and one single bed, and it was on the ground floor - meaning less stairs to get to the breakfast area.”
