Negative Reviews

Stairs could pose a problem

Guests note that rooms are accessed via stairs that are narrow and fairly steep. This is likely to present a challenge for any guest who has issues with their mobility.

Surroundings can be noisy

Reviews suggest that you can expect a fair amount of noise here. The music in the pub goes on until late at night for starters. Plus, there is quite a lot of noise from the street from early in the morning - expect bin collections and local cafes setting out their chairs.

Poor Wi-Fi service

Guest feedback indicates that the Wi-Fi here could be much improved. While there doesn't seem to be too many issues getting online in the pub, the rooms are a different story. Some guests have found the signal weak while others have been unable to get online at all.
