I would highly recommend this Guest house, fantastic value. It's so clean (and I've very high cleanliness standards) and the owners are very welcoming. It's so peaceful, tucked away, yet everything in the town centre is just a walk away Highly recommend it.......We'll definitely be coming back in the future
