Positive Reviews

Handy location for exploring the town on foot.

The town centre with its numerous shops, bars and restaurants is a short walk away from the guest house which many found very convenient. There are lots of nature trails in the vicinity which suited keen walkers and those who prefer to spend their time outdoors.

Helpful and friendly hosts.

From their arrival until departure guests said that they felt perfectly at ease at the guest house due to the friendly and hospitable owners. Many said that they received a wealth of information and tips from the owners with regards to the local area and appreciated the fact that their host was often on hand willing to assist with any issues and queries.

Hearty and tasty breakfasts.

Guests were impressed with the wide range of food available on the continental buffet whilst those who opted to have the cooked dishes said that they were well-prepared from quality local produce. If you like to start your day with a hearty meal then you certainly won't be disappointed.

Negative Reviews

Limited space in rooms.

Quite a few guests mentioned that the rooms were on the small side as there was limited space to move around in between the furniture. The bathrooms were also said to be rather compact with guests stating that they found it difficult to manoeuvre.

Noise issues.

Guests whose rooms overlooked the road said that they were able to hear traffic from the street whilst others mentioned that due to the thin walls they could hear noise from the adjoining suites.

Restrictive breakfast times.

There is only an hour's window for breakfast which is served between 8 and 9 much to the disappointment of some of the guests who said that they would have preferred a lengthier time slot for their morning meal.
