Lovely, unusual inn

A lovely, unusual inn in a residential neighborhood but walking distance of the West End and South Bank. Very clean and comfortable. Our only complaint was that the only time we saw any staff was when we arrived and were handed the key. This person gave almost no information about the inn or neighborhood. There was no number given to call someone if we had a problem or question--or needed fresh towels.
