Unfortunately, I have to agree with the recent reviews. Garfield Guest house is in a great location and looks OK, but it is not a pleasant experience staying there. Martin was friendly when I spoke to him on the phone and greeted us when we arrived, but then we never saw him again. We spent 2 nights staying here after Christmas with our 3 teenagers. Their room faced the road and was very noisy. It could do with proper curtains rather than bamboo blinds to block out the street lights. Our room faced the back and was quieter, though the other guests were very noisy and you can hear them using their bathroom. Also, the bedside lights didn't work unless you fiddled with the switch and the TV didn't work at all. We rang Martin to report the TV problem but it was never fixed.
The breakfast is OK, but the girl serving the food was not friendly.
The free internet is a bonus, and the location is good, but we won't be staying here again.
