This is definitely the worst B&B I've ever visited with the rudest owner who got very angry for absolutely no reason at all. When we booked, we were told that we would get a family room with two double beds, but we were given a double room with a put-up bed. The mattress covers were very dirty and old with... More

We have checked our booking information and concluded that this guest did not actually stay at the Classic Guest House and therefore this review does not reflect the quality of service and accommodation available here.

My husband and I stayed here in June. The location was good, close to town but not right in the busy centre. It's a lovely building and the staff are all very friendly and sweet. Our room was gorgeous, apparently the best in the house and we believed it! I'd happily recommend and stay here again. It's run more like... More

We arrived early in the morning, in the midst of other patrons checking out - a very busy time - but the proprietor welcomed us warmly, filled our water bottles, explained how the transit system worked, and provided a great map directing us to the old city. He also suggested a superb restaurant for dinner and was most gracious throughout... More

The proprietors are super nice and the breakfasts are always good and hearty. My room was cute; it was on the top floor and had a skylight / attic window. When my shoes got soaked through by a sudden summer squall, the lady of the house was nice enough to turn on the heater in my room so I could... More

This is the perfect B & B where the owners have thought of everything. Lovely place to stay. Room very bright and airy and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is served in a very pleasant conservatory and is cooked on request. Definitely recommend the "Classic" experience.

As I told the host/owner, his was the best breakfast I've ever had away from home. In addition to an excellent selection of fruit + porridge & cold cereals, I also accepted the offer to have cooked tomatoes & mushrooms, rather than eggs with meats, tomatoes & mushrooms.
