    Hygiene need to be improved ”

    Slightly over rated. Though the staffs are kind, the hotel is old and need to improve on the overall cleanliness of the room.

    Уютный маленький шест хаус”

    Завтрак включён без доп.оплаты! Внимательный хозяин. Ежедневная уборка номера.

    Время пребывания - ноябрь 2015. Все хорошо, не в центре, но доступно на автобусе и пешком (30 мин), что в хорошую погоду даже приятно прогуляться! Удобно пешком идти на холм Артур Сит. Недалёко большой торговый центр с супермаркетом Сейлсбури. Напротив шест хауса есть пара кафешек с вкусной и недорогой едой на вынос. Недостаток в том , что было очень холодно в номере в ноябре, спала под 2-ям одеялами, холодный пол. В остальном все ок.
