Liked: Our hosts, Janine and Ken were very helpful and kind; always willing to provide us with information and were very knowledgable! After just a couple of days this place felt like home! Immaculately clean with fantastic 'make your own' breakfast facilities. We'll definitely be recommending it to friends and families and would strongly reccommend the Urban Hideaway to anyone looking for somewhere a little different to conventional hotels or hostels! Keep up the great work guys!

24 September 2007 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Janine & Ken were great hosts, always had time to answer queries. Fantastic DVD collection available for free. Only downsides were that the room a bit dark due to lack of natural sunlight and the pigeons outside the bedroom window kept us awake late at night and very early in the morning. The amount of seating space in the kitchen was also limited.
