Welsh girl graduated.
We met Rupert the owner at the property and he was very friendly and helpful. We had two rooms for two nights because we were attending our daughters graduation. The location was excellent right in the centre of town and made our visit extra special. Thank you’

Hurrah for Henry's
Excellent location, 6min (flat) walk from station, tucked away on a quiet, central road. Local amenities minutes away. Room itself, compact but everything needed available. Plenty to do around the city... Mon - Fri break just right.

8/10 Very Good

In need of some additional TLC
Great location and on a relatively quiet street but only a minute away from the main streets. A couple of issues with the room, not very well stocked with glasses/crockery or cutlery. Also the sealant around the shower tray was unsightly and needs a good cleaning or replacing.
