Wonderful friendly guest house
We stayed three nights and the whole experience was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was very friendly. The room was clean and comfy. We also found the location had great bus links into town. We used the bus during the day and into the late evening and never had to wait longer than a couple of minutes. Highly recommended.

Attentive and helpful staff however room and quality of stay dissapointing.
En suite bathroom facility was too small and uncomfortable. Sink too small that one is unable to fill up the kettle in the room. Generally the quality of the room experience was found wanting, though the front desk staff was helpful and friendly.
