Winchelsea guesthouse is exactly a home away from home. Mr Winston Campbell the owner is very welcoming and friendly. Any needs you have he is ready to assist. The interior of the guest house is neatly put away. I will surely reccomend this guesthouse if you are looking for somewhere to stay at an affordable price.
The winchelsea guest house is the ideal place for business people, students, or individuals visiting for visa appointments. The own is very much organized in pick up on arrival at the airport, and transportation, his best interest is to make his guest comfortable and make their experience a wonderful one. The Guest house is in a quiet neighborhood. I would recommend this place for individuals who study a lot the rooms are lovely with a wonderful view of the street.
1) Cash only, no refund. If you want to watch tv the living room is the only area with cable. No air conditioning, but a fan in your room to keep it cool. Rooms are not thoroughly cleaned, there was a used hairy dirty bar of soap near the bathroom sink in my room. Wi-fi wasn't working properly in the house, so another guest that was there told me she threatened to leave because he told her it worked fine but after she signed the agreement she went to use it and nothing. He bought a wi-fi router for us to use after she complained. 2) There is no shuttle, the owner rents a car and picks you up. I do not advise single women to stay here, owner is nosy and seems lonely. After picking you up at the airport, he will ask you if you have the money for the room (obviously why would I show up empty handed?) My flight landed early in the morning and I wanted breakfast, he suggested going to a Massy supermarket and made it seem like there wasn't anywhere nearby the guesthouse to go shopping. I did buy breakfast, but the supermarket itself is expensive. He walked through the entire store asking if I was going to buy anything else for the house. I wasn't planning on cooking, I don't cook while on vacation..I just got some juice and water and he handed me his rewards card to scan. He did the same thing to another female guest the next day, and I later found out (from talking to locals) he does this because Massy has a rewards program where you get points for every dollar spent. By the way, once we reached the house he told me if I walked to the bottom of the hill the beach was there, well not only was the beach there but there was also a supermarket cheaper than Massy, (Jordan's) and a few other stores. 3) He assumes that you're going to hire him as your personal chauffeur and pay him to take you around the island. I was told by him that the buses didn't run very often and if I needed to go somewhere he will take me if I pay him. Well, that same day I found the cheaper store, I also saw buses and taxis galore. I talked to some locals about getting around and stuck with taking the bus. I did take a taxi home at night because I was told by a few people the area isn't safe to walk around at night. I also mistakenly walked to the wrong block to catch the bus home, so I stuck with taxis in the evening there on out. He told me about Oistins Beach on Friday nights and he'll take me if I pay him. He knocked on my door Friday morning to ask me if I was going to Oistins that night and who is taking me cause he'll take me if I pay him..really?? I didn't even eat breakfast yet and here he is worrying about me and my plans and putting more money in his pocket. I got to know a few taxi drivers, and had one take me there and back. Saturday morning, he asked me how was I getting back to the airport on Monday, I told him I thought he was taking me cause that's what we agreed on. He said since I wasn't using his rental car to get around he took the car back..no problem I found my own way back. I just reported him to Expedia for this, don't advertise airport transportation then change your mind about it just because you expect your guests to spend the majority of their money on you to get around. 4) Safety. I don't know if it's paranoia or if it's a bad neighborhood but I have never been to someone's home with so many chains and padlocks inside and outside of the house. There's a chain and padlock on the fence before you enter the home he claims that's for safety...as if someone can't just hop over the fence. When you get inside the house, there's a second door with a padlock on it that he keeps open because he doesn't want his curtains messed up. Upstairs there's another door to a small porch area that also has a padlock on it. Bars on all of the windows, and there's an additional door at the front entrance with two locks you slide to get in. I think he keeps the chain and padlock at the front fence so he can hear you coming in and out..example..I got home early one night and fell asleep, woke up hungry later on that night and had my taxi driver take me to get food. I came back and all of his lights were on so he must have heard me leave. After my driver left, he came out of his place to say wow you were out late tonight! um ok and?? I'm an adult not your child...what time I come in and out is none of his concern. He does go in your room, I ran out of toilet paper and I forgot to mention it to him on my way out. When I got back later that day, there was a brand new roll of toilet paper by my door..how did he know I needed it when I never told him? 5) Upon checking out, he had to make it a point to mention to me again that he rented the car and not once did I ask him to use it. First of all I didn't tell him to rent the car and I don't know why he made the assumption I would be using him to get around. I don't go on vacation to spend all of my money, especially on someone as greedy as him. During my flight home, he texted me on whatsapp saying I left my winter coat in the closet. That was not my coat but someone else's that was left there...so either he doesn't check his rooms at all or was just lonely and trying to start a conversation. Then he texted me again saying well I wonder who it belongs to and if it belongs to a man or a woman. I'm halfway across the ocean on an airplane do you really think I care about a coat in a closet that doesn't belong to me? I blocked him after that, no need to keep in contact with him because I have absolutely no plans to stay here again and wouldn't recommend anyone to do so. I also have photos I will try to upload of the inside of the house, along with the hairy soap bar that was in the bathroom, the backed up bathroom sink, and the fuzzy tv in my room.…
