An average place to stay
For a three star guest house it was ok, however, bathrooms were Very musty smelling. The towels need upgrading along with bedroom decoration. It’s an ok place to stay if you are happy with outdated furniture and furnishings. The breakfast was very nice and very fresh and hot when served. The breakfast room staff were very good. Our party had 2 rooms and the second room was better furnished, however still dated.

Pleasant well-run location for a short stay
The two ladies running the guest house were very kind and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and the property overall was clean and well looked after and very secure. However, the room I was in was a bit spartan and outdated (no table or desk and an ancient wardrobe with hardly any clothes hangers) and the bathroom was in need of some TLC. The internet connection was a bit of a challenge on occasions as well but the problems were addressed when brought to the attention of management. Overall, though, good value for money.
