Payed to stop 1 night with my son and daughter. The house was like a rave party was going on! At roughly 11.30pm as we couldnt get to sleep we headed back to our car and drove home. Appologies aplenty and got a refund but also promised a free night. When I asked about this I got no reply so...

The breakfast was so tasty and really good value. So prepare to eat big in the morning to start the day on the right note. It was so cheap! The selection was plentiful as well. The rooms are like the rooms in your house, very homey. The lady there was very nice and would give you good recommendations as to...

Breakfast excellent value, brilliant service from Madalena BUT the beds were terrible! Fortunately I checked on arrival and explained that I wouldn't survive a night on a bed that should have been taken to the tip.... in fact it looked as though most of the furniture had been found there. Madalena gave me the only good quality mattress in the...

I had a great stay at the Shelley Town Residence. We walked in to ask if we were allowed with our dogs. We were given the family room, which was big enough for 2 people and 3 dogs. I probably don't have to mention how hard it is to find a place to stay if you ahve 3 dogs with...

Right in the middle of town a small terraced house in a narrow street with small rooms and a shared bathroom. We parked a few streets away by the castle and park. The important thing is that the price very clearly reflects waht you're getting, and everything is very clean. There is no fried breakfast but the continental breakfast is...

A fab little find and I will go back again. They fit my little family of 4 in at very short notice, and at a great price. We had a warm welcome and the children were greeted with some fun toys to play with. Fresh ground coffee in our rooms and at breakfast was an extra special touch and the...

We found this at the last minute having read trip reviews, which were mixed. I don't know where the people who said it was terrible had been because this place while simple and basic was perfectly ok for our needs. It's clean, cheap, has decent beds and the star of the show is Marlena, the polish hostess. She smiles, gives...

Stayed here for one night. The accommodation is basic but that is reflected in the price. A very comfortable bed and everything extremely clean. Marlena greeted us and looked after us throughout. Any boss would be pleased to employ her. We would stay here again.

Basic facilities, one lot of tea offered in room for two nights three mornings. not the best decor, rooms could do with a lift.. Only problems was sharing bathroom and no parking at all unless u want car mirrors ripped off. Had to park two streets away. Staff lovely.. Cooked breakfast would have made all the difference.
