This is a great hostel. The location is perfect and the staff is very helpful in locating free wildlife sighting locations ( the local i-site is useless in this regard) . The kitchen is adequate. Bed and rooms are clean.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Manor House, the inside of the building truly matches the name and the rooms and beds are very comfortable. Well equipped kitchen and great facilities. Even when my boyfriend put our tumble drying on the cold setting, the receptionist sympathised and let us go again for no extra charge. Much appreciated! Thank you... More

Definitely a hostel type environment and the place needed a good cleaning but the place was acceptable for 2 nights and close to downtown. We stayed in a double room upstairs that was very cold but extra space heaters were provided. While there was a bathroom upstairs, the only showers were downstairs and while very cold outside, the shower room... More

Nice old place, our room was warm and cosy. Enjoyed our stay here and the manager qhose name I can't remember (from Hungary) was very helpful and informative which is always a bonus. 10minute walk to octogon is your a fast walker.

The Manor House is very nice hostel under new management and very nice owner and manager. The owner uses a lot of heart to make the hostel a better and nicer place to stay. We really enjoyed our stay. The free unlimited WiFi and free DVDs just topped it.

refurbished manor house. The house we were in had 2 rooms downstairs with a kitchen and BR. Upstairs was another small kitchen and 2 Toilets. One shower and a bathtub. Driveway is very steep; our mazda demio couldn't make it up the hill. The unlimited free wifi is a bonus. You get a password for 1MB of data but if... More

The separate bathroom was nearby and was clean and had plenty of hot water. There was two kitchen areas that had lots of... More
