Any vist to this wonderful city should include at least one night here. Owned by a family who were involved in the war in the 1990s, the have recreated what was like during that horrific time. No furniture as all that would have been burned to keep them warm. Mattresses on the floor and army blankets (clean sheets were provided!!). The walls were adorned with newspaper articles of the time. Fascinating stay included a war mock up when the host made and lit a candle from a cup of cooking oil and a she lace which is how they survived. A film night included a choice of documentary or feature film. The film is shown in an incredible room which I will not spoil by describing. Show an interest and the host all fascinate you!!!! Little bit fiddly to find but quite near main road and National Library.
