We were in the 'family' apartment. Comfortable, but décor and furniture looking a bit tired. However, the staff was fantastic- friendly, responsive, welcoming. There was a storm which broke a window in our daughter's room- I was amazed they were able to get it fixed that day! Great breakfasts. Excellent location.

Our 7th stay here and it's like coming back home each year. A warm and generous welcome from all the staff. Wonderful breakfasts cooked by Eunice who really pampered us. A little disappointment was that there was no dry white wine in the honesty fridge and none appeared whilst we were there for our 3 nights. This has never been... More

Was not what I expected from the webpage images. Rooms need some TLC and maintenance. Food (Breakfast) was good and kitchen staff very friendly. Parking is a big issue as you have to park in the road and sometimes even around the corner and walk to guest house. This was not fun at 1 in the morning.TV channels very limited.

A quiet, nice place near the center of town. The rooms are welcoming (great bathroom) and breakfast is good. It is on a side street and so it can feel somewhat isolated, and there isn't a stream of activity or staff around. The staff are friendly but overall service is average. However, for a short stay in the center of... More

The location is ideal for walking to the city but not in the thick of it - set back in a quiet residential street. Rooms are small but well equipped, clean and comfortable. Front staff were very friendly and helpful, more akin to family bed and breakfast than a hotel! Breakfast was included both hot and cold and this was... More

Guesthouse with great rooms close to town center and nevertheless quiet located. Small pool, very good breakfast, helpfull staff, good money value. Tip: Don't miss a visit in the Aubergine Restaurant nearby.

Had a lovely stay again. Very friendly and attentive staff, and looks like they've done a bit of an update of the rooms which is nice. Perfect location, lovely little pool, nice and quiet but not too far from everything. Breakfast pancakes were delicious, comfy bed and good aircon (as it's been pretty scorching!). I'll be back again next year!... More

Arrived at Dunkley house at 3PM. Had to wait outside for 10min as no one answered the door bell, whilst standing there someone was yelling at a staff member because something got stolen. Tried to check in had to wait another 20 min because the apartmemt was not ready yet.
