The welcome was warm and un-fussy just how I like it. I was given my own key to come and go as I pleased and was not bothered by noise or knocks on doors as I've experienced elsewhere. My breakfast was enjoyable with plenty of choices, My cooked breakfast was served promptly at my chosen time. I'd booked it the night before. The room was clean and bright with free wifi. I coped with the electric plugs being behind the beds but a disabled person might struggle with moving the bed as I had to do to plug my laptop and phone in. I'd have preferred to be able to close the lined dark curtains as I need a completely dark room, but this isn't possible because of the curtains being stopped by the rail brackets. This may not bother other people as the blinds were of a heavy kind, but some light gets through in all the downward cracks, at the edges and at the top. I'd come to this guesthouse again but I'd have to find out about curtains firstly, else bring eye shades. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were hard and gave me neck ache (I'll bring my own pillow next time).
