          Very friendly and helpful hosts, with excellent breakfasts, however, we did not stay in any of the rooms shown on the website, but in a much lower standard room, which was disappointing. Quiet location, at some distance from the city centre.

          Dear Garden Guest House, My wife Debbi and I would like to stay with you, but our flight arrives at midnight from Amsterdam on January 30th. Our flight is KLM Flight 873. We are not sure if this is too late to check in. If it seems possible, we would like to book a double room on the nights of Jan 30th (although we won't arrive until after midnight) and Jan 31st. We would need transport from the airport on Jan 30th. Let me know what you think - if you have availability and if you are OK with a very late arrival. If this seems possible, let us know the cost for the room and the car from the airport. Thanks, Liam Holt
