It is centrally placed for many of the attractions in the area and there is good public transport available close by the guest house. This is honest budget accommodation - simple and slightly dated, but offering clean and comfortable facilities and Janet's (the treasure who looked after... More

The old manse offers clean , basic accommodation and I mean basic. No soap, no shampoo, two teabags per day, two coffees per day and no biscuits. Breakfast is available at extra cost if required. Cash only is the policy and you are required to pay the full amount on arrival, without seeing the room. The room itself was clean... More
