beautifully remodeled rooms with luxoury bathrooms, very competent and reliable service, nice common space to prepare tea/coffee or get a drink. About 2 km to downtown with very nice walking through park.

I stayed for six nights in August and cannot say enough good things ... the wooden-floored room was large, elegant and comfortable (and especially after I worked out how to use the heating on a cold winter's night and discovered the underfloor heating in the spacious bathroom); every member of staff with whom I dealt went out of his and...

The room was very damp and the walls had water marks. No hot water in the bathroom. We will never use Dunkley House for our corporate accommodation. It will not take a lot to redo the walls around this room and to replace the shower door and give the shower grout a good scrub. The carpets also need to be... More

We appreciate and accommodate guests complains. However, we never had a problem of not having hot water at our guest house. In winter, in very cold days, sometimes, hot water take time to reach rooms...a bit of patience would help. I personally advised the guest to run water for few minutes and later checked with guest , if water was... More

Having stayed at Dunkley 5 weeks earlier we decided to return as we knew the accommodation was very comfortable, the staff most competent and eager to please, and the location convenient and central. And of course the breakfasts are first class. We would certainly recommend this establishment.

We booked room 5 but had to change after one night to another room due to the noise. I was very pleased that they agreed to pick the tab for that. The pancakes served for breakfast were v delicious.

My girlfriend and myself stayed in Dunkley House for a week. Close to the city centre and as a save neighbourhood this was a great place to go for daily activities. More noteworthy is the house itself and its staff. The rooms are great with king size bed, some have a patio and a fantastic bathroom. The included breakfast is... More
