We stayed there 1 week after the new owner, Louis, took over this Guesthouse. The former owner didn't refurbish or renew anything in the past years. So we arrived directly in a "construction area", because the booking information was not forwarded by the former owner to Louis. Nevertheless he gave us a friendly welcome and took care of our rooms...

A real home away from home with every stay over. Great value for money. Service is great. Friendly, supportive staff. Ease off access to nearby restaurants, shopping centre, airport and motorway.

No other place away from home for a world traveler like myself, comes near the excellence that Ronnie and his team provides. Having resided in Stockholm, Washington DC and now Rome in Italy, Greatstays had a great deal to compete with. My business trips and family holidays have always brought us to Ronnie's charming niche in a bustling metropolis and...

it's quite interesting to find out that of the eight previous posters two (equalling 25%) have made the same experience as I: my initial payment for a single bed / one night was deducted right after by booking, eight months in advance which was fine with me; however, a couple of weeks before my scheduled arrival the full amount was...

Client's credit card was refunded as we were holding a double booking for this client in our booking system for which the 1st nights payment is automatically charged to the client's credit card, the client was informed about this and also understood that it was a mistake of a double booking. With regards the client/s sweater that he left at...

Its such a shame to write this because our stay was quite nice, from the room quality, down to the service and breakfast on offer. However upon our return home, my father advised me that his credit card had been deducted double the amount for the 2 rooms we had for 4 nights. I promptly emailed Ronny the owner who...

Client/s credit card was refunded, and we did apologised for this double payment which was an error on our booking site. We've noted the clients comments about their nice stay with us for which we thank them as well and really feel bad that this matter about their credit card being charged twice because of an error took so long...
