Had been dealing with George for over 9 months and initially found him very upfront and honest and courteous but, over many months, I could not pin him down to confirming bookings for rooms required. Rooms available for late October 2016 continually changed from twins to doubles, so he agreed last week that, in view of all the problems I'd...

Firstly, George the owner is about the most friendly and helpful guy you could ever meet. There is no breakfast room so he endeavours to provide guests with a basket of whatever pre_packed food they want and also fresh milk/juice etc for the mini fridge in the room. During my stay (Aug 16) he was putting down wooden floors as...

I would advise anyone interested in booking this venue to tread very carefully! We telephoned a reservation for the end of July back in April. We confirmed in writing immediately with our cheque for full payment. Two weeks before we were due to arrive we received a telephone call from Thorlee saying that our room was no longer available and...

George the owner lives on the top floor with a dog in the most complete chaos,and with the stench of rotten in the stairs! I do not recommend everyone to stay in this guest house, moreover, the prices are...

George has taken over the business this year and is making a great effort to produce a quality business with great service and attention to detail. The location is 100% central, the rooms are good size and George ensures that an excellent breakfast service is provided. Thanks George and good luck

Within five minutes of arriving we were covered in bed bugs. The owner (George) swapped rooms but accused us of bringing the bugs! The new room also had bed bugs but not as bad. Room 5 was infested with dead bugs all over the carpet. Don't even consider staying here even if you are desperate. Sleep in the car!

Great place to stay, within walking distance of the ferry, town, castle and beach. Very comfortable and very clean. George the owner very welcoming and provides a very good continental breakfast. Room was a fabulous size with lovely ensuite. Even an iron and ironing board provided. Nothing too much trouble and if you wanted anything you only had to ask😀
