  • “Our stay in Fawcett House was slightly marred by the persistent ringing of the intruder alarm from Austins Letting Agency at the end of the alleyway.”

    It rang constantly from Saturday afternoon (when we arrived) all the way through till Monday mid morning, not pleasant and very disturbing. Contact was made to the Letting Agency but to no avail, it took the owners of Ellie's Cafe to contact someone to attend to the alarm. I'm sure it disturbed many more residents in Flowergate. Otherwise Fawcett House is a lovely place to stay
