“Charming and Delightful.. a must stay at hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

We had contemplated staying at the Islington but decided against it as we wanted somewhere to relax and not be bothered by staff.

Clydesdale Manor was the perfect choice as Lynne and Wayne were the perfect hosts without being obtrusive and being available with helpful suggestiosn when needed.

It was refreshing to spend a day travelling aorund and returning home to enjoy a glass of local wine by the fire (yes this was in December !!).

As has been mentioned before breakfasts are indeed a treat and should be sampled duirng your visit.

Do take up their offer of prebooking restaurants as we had spoken to others who for one reason or another belived that reservations would not be needed and they had a terrible time getting a table anywhere.

Really we could not fault any aspect of this charming little hotel and can now see why it is so highly regarded.

Room Tip: The Superior Rooms are rather grand

We booked a room based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and can only say that this is an excellent place to stay. We had room nr. 3 opposite the reception. Spacious, comfortable bed and nice bathroom. The guesthouse is a nice 15 min walk to Salamanca. Within 5 minutes there are some nice Asian restaurants. The hosts Wayne and Lynne were very kind and helpful. Breakfast great. For extra's like eggs, fruit salad you have to pay a little extra but well worth it. Great stay in a nice city.

We had planned on staying at the HJ Art Hotel and made a last minute booking at the Clydesdale Manor. What a good decision.

The hotel owners, Wayne and Lynn, made our stay wonderful and memorable . The hotel is absolutely spotless and every detail is considered. The gardens are beautiful, the rooms spacious and the bathrooms modern. This is not just a great place it is also good value. Don't make the mistake of staying downtown; this is your place.

The hotel is a comfortable 15 minute stroll to the Salamanca Markets, through the historic residential neighborhood which is beautiful to explore and has lovely cafes. The walk in each morning was a highlight.

We didn't have time to enjoy the hotel breakfast, but it looked wonderful.

Hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we did.

We had originally planned to stay at the Henry Jones which we've enjoyed before but it was fully booked (Dr's convention - go figure). So off to the Clydesdale Manor, and I think it might win out on a future trip.

A couple of things we liked.

1. The room was comfortable, original and the bathroom's heated floor was a big hit. We had no noise problems even though we were at the front side of the manor facing the road.
2. The breakfast was excellent - Wayne is a great chef and the custom ordered daily specials are worth a trip by themselves. The menu changes daily.
3. Super service. We got insider restaurant and museum recommendations and Wayne and Lynne handled the bookings for us. We ate at the fantastic Me Wah which is right beside the guesthouse.

So, a different kind of trip than a hotel and very enjoyable.

Room Tip: Make sure you have the heated bathroom floor - comfy.

Awesome hosts, awesome accomodations, awesome service, awesome breakfast.   The bathrooms have recently been remodeled and have heated floors.  Easy walking distance to restaurants and the waterfront.  Refrigerator in the room.

We have a group of 13 and I thought it would be nice to stay in this place as it have 7 rooms. We took up the whole place as if it is our own house, the owner Wayne and Lynne were wonderful host and hostess, they are discrete and always there when we needed a helping hand. Lovely , clean , tastefully decorated rooms, the breakfast were freshly made every morning. It is located on a main road, thus traffic noise in the front rooms.

Room Tip: There is only one King size bed , the rest is double, if you need to sleep in a big bed , besure to...

First night in a "superior " room with old painted side tables and traffic noise we were then 'upgraded' as a complimentary offer to a "deluxe" room which was more in keeping with the expectations gained from the outside 'look' ie georgian.A pity the 'upgrade cost us the difference, a matter not seen on the bill until later unfortunately. This bedroom was good but the fridge cabinet in 'mock teak' let the rest of the dark furniture down for the look of the room. No noise as this room was double glazed - necessary for a main road frontage. Expensive anyway the breakfast is extra and charged by the item - but with a minimum charge of $17.50 and not even a cooked option it was way too much for anyone who might just want a light breakfast - go to the waterfront not 5 minutes by car and get a good deal!
Service was good but skimpy room service -eg after one day of no service (requested) the next service did not replace but left our previously half used shampoos and lotions to be used again by us - surely it would be good to replace with a full shampoo tube - thats almost mean! Having said that it was well managed and the owner Wayne was very helpful.

Room Tip: Agree a rate for the front deluxe room on the ground floor and go out for breakfast
