My two girlfriends and I stayed at this guest house for two nights. We knew it was only a 1 star accomodation, but thought that after requesting an upgrade to 2 private rooms it would be OK. Instead we were forced to stay in one cramped room - the alternative would have meant one of us bunking in with a... More

Stayed at this guest house for five nights and was well pleased. Made to feel very welcome. Staff were extremely courteous. Nothing was too much trouble. Nice large room with a really pleasant view. Good central location. I cannot understand some of the other reviews. Hard to believe these people stayed at the same place!

Rolls were too hard to be edible. - there's dust everywhere in the room. Left a wet bath towel on the chair and part of it turned black from picking... More

Stayed for two nights on my own. My booking was last minute and was very cheap so I thought "brilliant" and went for it. Upon entering I detected a faint, strange smell - perhaps an old cooking smell I thought. The house seems to be full of old ornaments and paintings - including a marble bust beside the front door...

Down the street from a friends place and no idea what to expect but pleasantly surprised. Big room, everything you need. Great hosts and good location. Food was hearty and on time. It's a bit of history just to stay there.
