My husband and I stayed at The Guest Room for 3 nights at the end of April, and what a great choice that was! We really enjoyed how private, comfortable and tidy the accommodations were. We also thought that the location could hardly be beat; The Guest Room, with its own private entrance, is located on a wonderfully quiet street, yet it was just a short walk away from everything we had planned to visit.
Regarding the room itself, it was large, well appointed, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The private bathroom was also a good size and very clean. The breakfasts were a real treat! We enjoyed breakfast in bed all three mornings, and indulged in fresh juice, yoghurt, scrumptious breads with a selection of spreads, and porridge with a selection of delicious fresh toppings.
All this wouldn't have been half as good as it was had it not been for Katrina and Fergus who were so welcoming and helpful. From their bright smiles, to their great advice and delicious goodies (shortbread and hot tea after a long day's walk), they were the most wonderful hosts. We really felt very well looked after.
Upon our return to Canada, we raved about The Guest Room to all of our friends and family, and we will be sure to try and stay there again, if are so lucky as to make another trip across the pond!
