I spent one night at the Central Guest House and I have to say it was a very good experience. The room was perfect for my needs, soft bed, clean and tidy, plenty of towels, hot shower and a warm room. The guesthouse was located near to plenty of places to eat with a large shopping centre across the road... More

Room was a little dated but very clean. Owners were very friendly and answered our queries via email. Shame the only place to have an evening meal or a pint is the Peachey Keen's but we can't blame them for that. Breakfast was very good and made to order. Rooms were a good size. Bus stop practially outside to go... More

Have stayed on many occasions over past 6 years. Warm, comfortable and pleasant accommodation. The proprietors Michael and Marlene cannot do enough to please and are so welcoming. Cannot understand the negative reviews. Some people are never satisfied. I have stayed at expensive hotels with crap service, poor standard of food and negative attitudes. The furniture may be basic but... More

We got such a great deal on this guest house that we were a little worried about what to expect. It was on a major road, easy to find. As we entered we could smell fresh flowers and we got a really friendly greeting from Michael and Marlene. They were friendly yet professional and showed us to our room, pointing... More

I stayed here 4 nights, coming from Oz and had a fantastic experience. Michael and Marlene are are extremely friendly and helpful. The place has a very real homely 'British' feel to it which I thought was lovely as an overseas visitor. I stayed in the single room. The room was cosy and warm. Bed was comfy. Wifi was quick....
