We've only been there for one night, but the room was large, clean and had everything you need, the Guest house is in a quit street, within walking distance of the city centre. The owners are very nice and helpfull, they serve an excellent breakfast in the morning. Overall, a great place too stay, we would definitly stay there again.

We had a lovely stay. The room was clean and bright. Bathroom was a teensy bit snug, but the shower was great to use. Dave was friendly and very accommodating with our infant during breakfast, which was delicious. There is parking to the rear, but no direct access from the rear into the guest house, so if you have quite...
