This is a well located guest house, very handy to the bus to the city centre and close to local shops. We found the double front gates and gravel pathway a little difficult to negotiate with our heavy luggage, but once we arrived at the front door we received a friendly welcome from one of the owners.
We had booked the Forest suite and found it to be very spacious with a large bathroom/dressing room which was separated from the bedroom by a curtain. This is one of the few guesthouses we have stayed in that had plenty of space to store our luggage. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable. It was nice to have a fridge in the room and fresh milk supplied.
The decor is very female oriented – pictures of shoes, pink towels - and the toiletries are heavily scented.
Unfortunately breakfast didn’t live up to expectations. We had to nominate a choice of food and time the previous day, so we expected it would be cooked to order and served at the requested time. This was not the case, as heralded by the frequent pinging of the microwave in the adjoining kitchen. It was obviously cooked early and reheated in the microwave. It was then served well after the requested time, quite dried out, on silly shaped plates. There was a lot of ‘style’ in rolled up bacon and baked beans in little dishes but the quality was lost in reheating. Additionally the morning lady was rather abrupt. Although she did everything required, it all appeared to be a bit of an inconvenience.
This is a well priced guesthouse and we enjoyed most aspects of our stay here. I’d like to rate it ‘Excellent’, but the breakfast experience let it down.
