Front door to residential section from main road, with two small steps and safety barrier.
Ground floor kitchen, dining room and lounge, all on level ground with no steps and with wide doorways.
Back entrance through gate leads to uneven area with access to drying room. Passage here quite narrow. The building is built very close to a cliff face and the rear area can be very wet after rain and as all the area is slate can be very slippery.
Stairs lead off from front door.
One flight stairs to 3 bedrooms (2 ensuite. 1 with small bathroom with shower, hand basin & toilet the other is larger). Further bathroom with shower, sink, toilet which is quite large).
Further flight of stairs to remaining 3 bedrooms and bathroom - similar dimensions to first floor. On this landing - a small step at each end to access bedrooms. One of which is close to the stairwell.
Due to the age of the premises some floors are uneven, although all areas have fitted carpets.

There are bright gold visual strips on edges of steps in bar area and on top landing to indicate change of level.
The premises are well lit throughout with fire alarms, smoke detectors and emergency 'fail safe' emergency lighting units in each room.
The premises are close to the road so audible road noise is common during busy periods. However the walls are very thick and the rear of the property is well sheltered from road noise and would be more suitable for people with auditory impairment.
The bar area can be noisy at times.
Payphone for use by guests on the premises.
Mobile phone reception varies. Vodaphone having best service in area.
