The first time I stayed at Pillows & Toast it was quite by chance, and what a find. The staff were extremely friendly and more than willing to help a tired, early morning arrival.

The use of the showers before technically checking-in was extremely welcome as was the luggage store, so that I could start my day. I stayed with Pillows & Toast a year later and the same friendly welcome and willingness to help was still evident, and more besides. This time I stayed longer and took full advantage of the local knowledge of the staff, and the facilities on offer.

Ironically, this stay saw an extremely early check-out, but again a friendly face was there to assist me with the process and wave me on my way. If you want a comfortable bed in a good central location, where you can stow you valuables away in decent sized lockers, and you want lots of friendly knowledgable staff on hand, you can’t go far wrong in Pillows & Toast. – SoloFlo of United Kingdom at TripAdvisor
