Stopped here last year and I was afraid to sleep in the bed because of the dirtyness of it and used my own towel to put over the pillow! And the smell was awful! I am guessing with no recent reviews it is now shut down and thank god 4 that!

Room was ridiculously small and dirty - we payed for a double bed and it was a 3/4 with a horrible lumpy mattress that gave you back ache from sleeping on. I suppose you could call us 'lucky'...

This business has been bought by speculative sharks and consists of Sunnyhurst, Mabels, Westwood House, and Rosawyn Guest Houses - and perhaps more that I have not yet found. The properties do not bare any resemblence to a guest house as you would or should recognise. The properties have obviously not been decorated for a decade, the paper hangs of... More
