Lovely guesthouse, only 5 mins taxi ride from the city centre or half hour walk. Yummy breakfast, large clean room and friendly owners. If you're lucky you can even meet the dog, he's MASSIVE!! I would definitely recommend Smith's Guest House!

The room is en suite, there is a kettle, and hospitality tray, the room is very clean. Free wi fi... More

Stayed one night, had to drive around a bit before finding a parking spot two roads away. Comfy room with TV, kettle. Landlady offered friendly advice on dinner options around the inn. Good cooked breakfast in the morning

We stayed at the Smith's Guest House for only 2 nights last month, in July 2014. It was such a comfortable and airy room, the wifi worked well in our room, and the breakfast was delicious!! It was in a great location to get on the bus to anywhere in the city, and there was a great convenience store across... More

I stayed for a week in a small single room. It was very small but really nice. Wooden furniture and blue linnen and curtains. Quite clean too. The bathroom for this room is just across the hall, which is not as convenient as having an en-suite, but still ok. (I think all other rooms were en-suite). The bathroom was also... More

From the moment we booked by email we loved this place... From the 'secret hiding place' for the key, climbing the staircase, to the country style breakfast room and the loveable 'Toran' it was all we needed at a wonderful price. Our room was small yes, but comfy, clean and with a lovely view of the garden. And far superior... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Smith's Guest House & would definitely go back. It's close to the centre and easy to use public transport, Neil is fantastic and helped us out with directions & advice on things to. Breakfast was delicious, the room was very clean and had an ensuite. Toran (the Smiths' dog) was also a hit with... More

One night stay. Great place located not far south of city centre. Very informal, great value at £30 for an ensuite room (I actually booked the small single room with separate bathroom but was given the slightly bigger room which was nice). TV and wifi in room as well as tea / coffee making facilities. As I was leaving very... More

Thanks to late-rooms, I found this charming little guesthouse. I was made to feel very welcome and the single room is perfect for a solo traveller. The decor is nice and clean, blue with original wood was a great contrast, and breakfast was perfect, it filled me ready for a day in the city.
