Guesthouse with great rooms close to town center and nevertheless quiet located. Small pool, very good breakfast, helpfull staff, good money value. Tip: Don't miss a visit in the Aubergine Restaurant nearby.

Had a lovely stay again. Very friendly and attentive staff, and looks like they've done a bit of an update of the rooms which is nice. Perfect location, lovely little pool, nice and quiet but not too far from everything. Breakfast pancakes were delicious, comfy bed and good aircon (as it's been pretty scorching!). I'll be back again next year!...

Arrived at Dunkley house at 3PM. Had to wait outside for 10min as no one answered the door bell, whilst standing there someone was yelling at a staff member because something got stolen. Tried to check in had to wait another 20 min because the apartmemt was not ready yet.

Breakfast was great! The rooms located downstairs are noisy in the morning because they are just next to the breakfast area. Try to get a room upstairs or...

We had a wonderful stay at Dunkley House in the beginning of the year. The room was very clean and the personnel extremely helpful. Location was good - very quiet area, but not too far away from downtown or good restaurants.

We had two great nights at Dunkley House. The staff and service was great. Our room a little tired and needing a bit of love. Maybe a curtain over the skylight might help.But all in all very enjoyable.
