    It looked nothing like the pictures on AirB&B. Very basic room, walls extremely thin could hear everything. The shower was horrendous- id get a better shower standing outside.The only thing this place has going for it is the location. I would 100% not stay here again.

    Nice, small hotel within walking distance of 5he ferry and Railway station. On a quiet street, it has a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are on the small side, at least my single room was, but the bed was comfortable. The bathroom is "compact", but modern and clean.

    Stayed in a "wee" (not so small) studio. I suspect this room has just been refurbished, and a very good job they've done. Blinds for privacy, plugs with USB chargers; kettle, fridge and microwave. Comfortable bed and right next to the Long Stay parking, and Ferry Terminal. Highly recommended.
