Paid in full in advance and spoke to the proprietor the day before we were due to arrive. She was very accomodating and looked forward to welcoming us. When we arrived, after our 4 hour journey we were shocked to see a sign on the door saying "ceased trading - due to unforeseen circumstances". When we looked through the window...

Well I have certainly learnt my lesson about reading the reviews from Trip Advisor BEFORE booking and paying for any accomodation. If you are planning on staying here or have booked already please read this review now.

I booked two double rooms and twin room...

It’s clear that the Marlborough Guest House evokes extreme reviews. Either people love it, or they loathe their experience because of the landlady, Anna Howard. I think this is because Anna either takes a strong liking to people or an extreme dislike. Unfortunately, this decision appears to be based on her psychic feeling rather than any rational basis. I write...
