          The room was very tastefully presented and the welcome and administration was excellent. The breakfast was excellent. The location is within a good walk to the centre of the city. Could not fault this Guest House.

          Our room was compact (if your used to big plush rooms you'll probably need to pay more elsewhere) but it had everything you need for a short stay including a small en-suite comfy bed, small fridge and a fantastic continental breakfast in the morning.
