“Unusual homey stay”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Our stay was perfectly comfortable, and not quite like a hotel, which it isn't. As a guesthouse, I cannot complain much about the rooms, which were quaint, and the host was attentive and provided enjoyable home-cooked dinners and breakfasts.
The living room and bar area seems rather unkempt and disorganized, and need some housekeeping ( we had to help ourselves to drinks), and expect no TV or WIFI, so a relaxing early night in the peace of nature should be planned for.
Contrary to the previous reviewer's issue, the gardens were clean and tidy and quite lovely. The house is a little gloomy, partly because of the heavy Victorian style, but it is a place that has a slightly shabby homey feel, and is EXCELLENT value for money. It does not have that feel of a santized hotel, but rather a home.
Location was one of the highlights, being close to all the area's main attractions.
People with overdeveloped Americanized standards may not enjoy the place, but as a one-off experience I have no major reason for complaint.
I would certainly consider it again if staying in the area for the location, homey hospitality and value for money.

Room Tip: All rooms I looked at had a faded Victorian eara charm, and are all quite unique in their own ways.

After booking accommodation and confirming with the owner we arrived at 5pm on the evening of our stay to find the building locked up and no one home. The garden was messy and had dog filth everywhere and after 2 calls to the owner (who assued us that he was only 20 minutes away) and an hour's wait we decided to seek accommodation elsewhere. To this day the owner has still not called us to apologise or enquire about why we left.
