Very good location and fortunate to find a parking space more or less outside as the town was very busy due to it being school holidays. Ian was an excellent and very friendly host who gave good recommendations of places to visit and eat in the town. We were in room 5 as we were a family of 2 adults,... More

Sorry you were disappointed with your room. We do not intend to 'modernise' our building as we are proud of being custodians of a gorgeous early Victorian property with many original features.

Excellent location of Magnolia Guest House just a 5 min walk to beach and town centre. Very friendly owner who was really nice to our dog. Rooms are quite large and comfortable, it could do with a bit of updating but if you don't that this is a great place to stay. We would stay again!

I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and found the room to be below standard. The shower in question has been subject to a recent leak that has created the discolouring that you mention. The leak is now corrected, however I have not had the opportunity to complete the appropriate cleansing action. This will be completed... More
