I stayed at River View for 4 nights and loved it!
It is in the perfect location, easy walking distance to most places and right by the river.
I stayed in the dorm room at the front and it was fine, maybe the bunk bed could do with replacing though. There is only 3 people in this room which is great too.
There are 3 shower/toilet rooms but I never found that I had to wait for one.
The building is lovely (see my photos I added) with a great communal area.
The whole stay was made better by Raymond who will go out of his way to help his guests. When I checked in he gave me a complimentary drink and a map which he explained in detail. I haven't had that service from a guesthouse before!
Also the complimentary cakes, bread and fruit is a nice touch in the morning. I looked forward to seeing what there was each day. They were delicious and Raymond said that his wife bakes them everyday.
I could easily stay here again.
