Beds in the room were comfy. Breakfast is available for gbp 5 per person. We truly enjoyed our time here.
Loved the location, really close to the city centre and about 10 minutes walk from the Princess St
This St Bernard'S House is not comparable. A budget hotel in a FAVOURABLE setting with a good choice of little extras. In addition, we paid 3 gbp per 24 hours for internet. We enjoyed to have evening drinks at Rollo Stockbridge, based nearby.
the location. It's quiet here
Breakfast was badly organized
Cute little rooms, everything is clean. If you really only need a place to sleep absolutely sufficient and inexpensive
Appropriate, but old and shabby. Staff not really friendly, but always approachable. Continental breakfast is good, but has little choice. Bathroom not en suite
Cold Smells of mould Dirty bed sheets , old fashioned heating
Close to city
Cockroaches in the bedside table And rats in the front basement area Rooms filthy Poor facilities Impertinent staff with no English
The food was non existant Bathroom grimy and stank of urine !! Bed was u changed !! Rude staff
Leaving this dump
Dirty Smelly And staff were very rude No breakfast as was a waste I was told (would be nice to be told before I booked it !! )
There was none
Disgusting toilets looked I cleaned for a month !! Bed sheets were stained and torn! Cobwebs and dust in cups
No pros whatsoever.
The room was damp and filthy. Dirty carpets, cracks in the sink and on the cover of the bathroom ceiling light cover, NO hot water so we could not shower, when we tried the shower the water did not drain, the room smelled so badly we could not sleep. I kept my scarf over my face all night. My daughters were ill the next day. We could not get another room or we would have left immediately. We chose this site because it was in an area I am familiar with. Instead, it was a horrible experience. We were supposed to stay 2 nights but we left as quickly as we could after one night. We did send reviews to Trivago, Travel Advisor, but these were taken down as soon as we posted them. Owner was rude and unresponsive to our concerns. This is a one star location at best, not even close to a three. We asked for a refund of the second night stay and were refused as the stay was prepaid. A complete disappointment.
In general: This hotel is terrible. The wifi is slow, the hotel is a dump, it isn't close enough to the city center to be worth it. Location and surroundings: Pretty neighbourhood, dingy looking house on a dingy looking street. Service: The host was awful. Next level awful. He was a huge jerk, a borderline con artist and he mocked me for asking for a new room. He mocked me again for asking why I couldn't get hot water, why the shower was flooded and if there was anything he could do. He also spoke bad English and didn't seem to understand what I wanted. Was overall extremely disrespectful. Dining: Breakfast was extra, we didn't want to buy it because the rest of our experience had already been the pits. Sports and leisure: None. Literally none. Room: Our room (the second one we were put in because the first one was damp and activated my chronic bronchitis) was DISGUSTING. I have lived in dorms, I've roughed it, I've gone camping, but this take the cake as the worst place I've EVER spent a night. I'd rather sleep in a cardboard box, at least that's free. Rooms had dusty carpets, broken curtains, the room stank of wet paint to the point that my mom found it hard to breathe. And then the bathroom had a jagged crack in the sink, the shower was freezing and flooded, the fan was too loud to hear over and it was crawling with bugs. Useful tips: Go somewhere else. ANYWHERE ELSE!
Nice neighborhood, close to Royal Botanic Gardens. Fairly inexpensive.
No microwave or minibar in room. Better off getting free wi-fi and less expensive breakfast down the street in Stockbridge. Our room had peeling paint and loose floor tile in bathroom. Shower leaked despite best efforts at fixing the door strips, and too short for anyone over 5'7". No changing area and pretty squeezed in with double bed in room # 10. Heat went off at 9am and came back on around 4pm. A few steps above staying in a hostel.
Cozy, clean room close to most things. I walked most of the city but there was easy bus stops very close and a nice riverwalk nearby. Feels like your a local staying here.
Rooms are small and basic.
Where do I start?!! 1, The Owner: Desperatley needs to undertake professional training in the requirements of accommodation / guest houses, inlcuding hospitality requirements and throw in a crash course in public relations. 2. The Room: Anyone who chooses dark brown paint on a wall for a room that has a long narrow window,doesn't understand basic interior decorating, the wardrobe is 70cm x 40cm and contained 5 coat hangers for 2 people. It was impossible to slide the curtain across the window. 3. Dining Room: Desperately in need of redecoration. Large hole in the ceiling partially covered with ply board. Furniture more attuned to a Charity Shop (no offense to charity shop!). Breakfast plates were served on an old timber table, a place mat would of it more appealing. No formal lounge where guests could exchange pleasantries or read the paper. I could have said a lot more but would exceed 300 words. Of all our worldy travels it is the only guest house we couldn't wait to leave.
