The place was small and struggle to walk through with luggage in certain places. The male owner doesn't even sound professional when he answer the phone, he just says "hello!!" The room was lovely, clean and up to date decor. The car parking was good but only limited spaces. The staff were a bit dense and so-so friendly. The food... More

grand parents and 3 grandchildren. could not get a suitable guesthouse until we came across this place. enough beds for seven in this family room. Excellent service at breakfast and proprietor was most helpful to allow us to leave our car in his car park on the day we checked out. All round this was one of the best value... More

My wife and I stayed at this guest house when we were cycling the Way of the Roses route. I must say, having read some of the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was a bit apprehensive, and half expected to be greeted by Basil Fawlty himself! However, the owner is a nice man, if a little tetchy at times. When we... More

Stayed here with family in the family room. Room was standard, service was less than standard and to top it off after we left I realised that I had left one of my shoes in the room... I call the next day and I am casually & extremely rudely advised that 'it has been thrown in the bin'. Great service.

Made me laugh reading the previous post as it summed up completely the scamming owner... We arrived at 4pm with tickets to the races starting early evening. On arrival there was no sign of the owner! When he did arrive, we could sense before we even said our name that our name wasn't down! We too had a valid booking... More

we had a validated reservation with booking.com. Arrived about 3.30 thinking at least we were not trying to get in the room early. Greeted with no where to park and an offhand flustered very not welcome approach from the owner. He was equally treating a young couple who had arrived at the same time the same way who were also...

On arrival our rooms weren't ready, but the owner( Arthur) did his best to sort out 6 rooms within 30 mins. The room we had wasn't particularly large and the en-suite was tiny approx 2 inches knee space when sat on loo. The beds however were really comfy and had plenty of covers and pillows. Nice sized mug on hospitality... More

We like most of the other reviewers had a bit of a frosty reception on arrival, which was about 20:40 in the evening. I just put it down to the owner being tired and took it with a pinch of salt. The room was good, comfy bed, TV, tea/coffee making facilities. Good ensuite. The breakfast is very good a lot... More

We stayed on Saturday 4/7 as a group of 3 couples, the owner Arthur was somewhat intimidating as we arrived, said no matter how big and ugly anyone was he wouldn't have booze or food in the rooms, one of our party was a six foot gentle giant covered in tattoos ;) ........ the next morning however he was a...
