Our room on the ground floor was spacious, although a bit dated and you could hear every step in the corridor - so I would... More

The toilet door was not even painted. The bed covers had holes. No towels... More

The Guest House is managed by a friendly couple who always provide a warm welcome whatever time I arrive. The rooms are clean, warm and well kept,... More

Said there was free wifi but no details in room. Very noisy as room next to front door and bed placed on that wall, constant... More
