We stayed one night at the Rose Cottage in July 2009.
Our host Maura was a lovely old lady and I feel bad for giving a bad review. The good thing about the place is the great central location, parking and the lovely host. On the other hand I must comment on the maintenance and the condition of the place. The paint was starting to come off, the house is really outdated and we had spider webs in our room (I also killed 2-3 spiders in the bathroom during our stay). Also the breakfast was pretty basic eventhough Maura did her best to fullfil all request. The funny thing is the review about the food poisoning. We didn't encounter such thing but we did notice that the breakfast wasn't as fresh as it should. We actually discussed among ourselves how old people (also discussed my own parents) at some point lose the sense of how long food stays edible. I found the defensive reply from the owner to the previous review a bit strange.
I must thank Maura for our stay and I don't want to offend such a lovely lady with my reviews. Unfortunately my honest opinion is that she should retire to enjoy her well earned retirement. The place would need a new owner and full renovation.
