I booked this location for my parents, just on the basis of availbility, cost and previous reviews. My parents thoroughly enjoyed their stay and report his guest house as a good location within 40 mins walk to city centre, close to main bus routes and much quieter than city centre accomodations. The manager was very helpful as my dad is... More

Location is about a 20 minute walk to town and is also right on a bus line. Parking available 'round back of the property off the lane way. Room was plenty big enough for three adults....and was clean and comfortable. Andy and Kim were perfect hosts and breakfast were great.

Pros - Friendly staff, comfortable room, quiet location with secluded free car parking. Cons - The bathroom was too small with a tiny hand basin & not enough shelf space for the 3 of us, let alone the 5 that the family room could sleep. The location was slightly further from the town centre than ideal too, but the bus... More
