Overall the guest house is very nice. The balcony overlooking the river is a very peaceful place to chill out and made it worthwhile for us.
I came here with 3 other people and I personally didn't see the owner the whole time we were here (3 nights) we got a free upgrade to the room just on the balcony and it was lovely. Beds are comfy, room was clean and secure and air con was definitely a treat and well needed!
Showers/toilets were fine and cleaned daily.
Of the 3 days we were there we only had breakfast once as the other days the bread ran out. (only half a loaf is left out so unless your up before 8am its all gone) also the fresh cake that the owner normally puts out was only available on our first day which was a big disappointment as it was delicious! We craved it everyday after that! Free tea/coffee and fruit also a bonus and a nice touch.
Location is great, less than 5mins from everything it was nice to be on the river but slightly away from the noise and conjestion of the main tourist streets.
Would highly recommend staying here - but book in advance as they fill up quick, especially at weekends!
