We were looked after very well indeed by our hosts, who did everything they could to make us feel at home. We will certainly visit there again. Breakfasts were excellent, and although the guest house is outside of the city, it is easy to get a bus into the centre (just a 20 minute journey away).

The downstairs is pleasant and our room was big enough and clean but it is very cluttered upstairs. We had to negotiate past an ironing board to get through the door. The decor is comfortable but my husband and...
