Wi fi was ok in our room on the first floor but patchy in our friends' room on the second. Our room was... More

I stayed in the Rocklea guest house after a last minute booking with a friend. What a find! The room and en suit bathroom were lovely- they looked like a page out of a catalogue. It was beautifully decorated with double aspect Windows, designer bedding, soft fluffy towels and carpets, coupled with lovely finishing touches like a light up mirror... More

Breakfast is excellent with a wide variety of fruit and cereals available as well... More

We stayed here for two nights and felt so welcome and comfortable. Upon arrival we were offered a drink and shown to our room. The room was spacious and bright with a great view of the stream outside. Breakfast each morning was delicious, with a really good selection of fruit, croissants, cereal etc plus a cooked breakfast. A beautiful place... More
