Our stay at this guest house was all too brief. We were made to feel very welcome by the attentive host Martin who quite simply could not have done more to make our stay better. Griff House is well over 100 years old and is a short walk from the town centre. At the time of our stay, the house... More

The room was... More

Our 3-night stay here was wonderful! Our room was so comfortable and the en-suite bathroom was very smart. The bedding and towels were luxurious and the generous hospitality tray was kept well-supplied with lovely provisions (a jug of fresh milk in the fridge was much appreciated). The guest lounge provided a welcome additional space to relax in. Everywhere was spotlessly... More

Had a wonderful stay at Griff House a lovely tastefully decorated Victorian property. Our room was very comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. We would love to return someday. Breakfast was excellent and we could not have asked for more from our hosts.

We stayed here on our honeymoon and weren't disappointed. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was so comfortable and a lovely bathroom. The breakfast was fantastic and the granola is beautiful. Martin is a great host and on hand to recommend places to visit and eateries. Thoroughly recommend this place and would definitely return.

Lovely and clean and Martin was extremely helpful with his recommendations and knowledge of the area. Breakfasts were excellently cooked and although I didn't try it myself, my friends thought the granola was excellent.. Also very impressed with the bathroom, especially the hot shower and the towels felt like new. So, many thanks for a great stay and I would... More

Griff House is in a lovely Victorian building which has been tastefully refurbished. We shared a twin room on the top floor and it was comfortable, clean, quiet, light and airy with a modern en-suite. There is also a large sitting room downstairs for the use of guests. The wifi signal is good throughout the house. Martin and Kathryn are... More

Very friendly, polite hots helped us to a karge, well equipped bedroom with modern bath/shower facilities. All VERY clean and tidy. Good breakfast the next morning, cooked to order. Location good for the tourist though be aware it is at the 2top" end of town so ten minutes or so from the opera house etc.
