Liked: The staff here was so friendly and helpful. Carmen was so delightful and wanted to help us in any way possible. The rooms were immaculate and the bathrooms great. A little garden and video room added to the character. I only wish I could have stayed longer to take more advantage of all it seemd to have offered for guests.

Its only a 10 miinute walk away from the city centre (much closer than the YHA). Breakfast was excelent value. For just £1 paid on arrival you can have an unlimited Continental breakfast.
