Negative Reviews

No on-site parking

This guest house doesn't have any on-site parking. Guests mention that they were usually able to find a space nearby but as this isn't guaranteed, especially when the area is playing hosts to festivals, parking may present a problem.

Very occasional issues

The overwhelming majority of previous guests leave nothing but excellent feedback for the Dolly Waggon Guest House. Aside from the potential parking issue, there are no areas of significant concern. Any less than positive comments are exceptionally rare and relate to minor issues.
