          If you are looking for a place to stay for a longer term, then vagabond is the place to stay. It`s a home away from home. The facilities are clean and they got free wifi. Although the owner is a great guy and looks really...More

          Be prepared - this place is like a huge student house. No one washes their dishes and isn't that considerate of those who want a quieter time. However the double room we were in was clean but the bathrooms and kitchen were not! Good location...More

          Thanks - we hopefully should get all our final repairs ( painting etc done this winter ) - as for messy lounges etc - I'm going to make sure - when guests leave their jackets etc laying around we will take them into the office.
