We have stayed at this guesthouse many times now and it has always been superb! The rooms are clean, tidy and have all the required amenities one would expect. The breakfast was the best we have ever had in any guest house or hotel (Waldorf NYC & Burj Al Arab UAE included). Hash browns were also included with the breakfast,...

My husband and I stayed in a room to the front of the property, very basic room in need of upgrading. The windows rattled all night and the road was very noisy. The bedding and towels were very worn with no toiletries provided. The owner failed to tell us what time breakfast was at when we checked in so when...
