The room was beautifully decorated and presented, the bathroom and room were immaculately clean. There were some toiletries provided in the bathroom, a tea/coffee tray and kettle (with...

I have stayed all over the world in various types of accommodation and this guest house is right up there with the best. If I had to find one fault .... well the answer is I could not - absolute perfection and everything you could possibly want from a guest house. The hospitality and breakfast were superb.
