Stayed at The Staymor (try saying that in a hurry) for three days in room 6. What an excellent place, room 6 is a great room.

Well, what can I say? This lovely little guest house is an absolute gem! The room we stayed in, the railway room, 4, was spotlessly clean and all the linen and towels smelt wonderfully fresh and clean. the bed was so comfy. The breakfast? Delicious!

Our family of three enjoyed a two night stay. Our room was very comfortable and had plenty of space for the three of us. The bed was amazing. Seriously comfy. Breakfast was fresh and tasty. Booking was easy, and the price was quite good for what you get. We didn't mind the walk into the walled part of the city....
