The service was lovely and friendly and the guesthouse overall was clean and inviting. I would recommend this place to people who want a nice, basic and clean accommodation without the fuss. Breakfast was good and again, the staff went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of.

We stayed at Finchley for three nights in June 2016. The guest house is beautifully decorated, with the upper rooms boasting a stunning ocean view. The breakfast area also affords guests a similar experience. Bedrooms are equally well decorated, beds are large and the bathrooms also allow for ample space. Although I was impressed with Finchley's location and amenities, a... More

The staff at Finchley are very friendly and go out of their way to help guests - even when I had to wake them up at 12:30 at night! Our bedroom looked out over a beautiful ocean view, and the bathroom was spacious with a lovely jacuzzi bath. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will return.

Comfortable stay with stunning views. George was a great host. Shower needs to be sorted, water trickled out. Overall very pleasant stay. Cosy rooms. Breakfast took a bit long even though there are a lot of workers.

We loved it here (2 girls aged 30). It was sooooo warm and friendly. The staff were fabulous and even helped me out when I left my driving license at the guesthouse and I needed it to hire a car. It's like staying at a really nice Aunty's house.
