I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ashdene House. It's a wonderful location in a neighborhood with a few minutes' walk to the bus stop. It's clear from other reviews that "walking distance" is a matter of preference. It is just under 2 miles to many of the Old Town sites, but the roads are safe and quite walkable with lots of shops and small restaurants or coffee shops to discover and explore.
Caroline was generously helpful and accommodating. The dining area for breakfast is charming and the food is good. My room on the top floor was large and comfortable.
The recommended local restaurants are quite good, though I'd add Los Argentinos (West Preston) to the list.
At the end of a long day, it was quite delightful to return to Ashdene House for a quiet evening of rest.
