Liked: The fact that I left at 0500, yet I could still have toast/tea/cereal.

Disliked: Certain parts of the guesthouse seemed unclean and there was a slight stale smell upon entering my room. Member of staff who served breakfast wasn't the chattiest of people and didn't seem to care very much.

Liked: great location for the GSA and underground stop is a short walk. nice period features in the dining room and bedrooms. New carpets and curtains.

Disliked: The room gets pretty warm as the window only opens a small amount as it was nearly all painted shut. One reception lady was very nice but the other was a bit grumpy.
