Another fantastic visit. Really, all I can say. I've been here a few times and nothing has changed, Steph and Paul are really two of the most friendliest people you will meet and could not be any more accommodating. I stopped on my own, but I did not feel lonely at all, I felt relaxed and comfortable. Nice, warm room....

Only chose this guest house due to the ratings given but when we got there the room (10) was smelling of damp. No headboard and no simple toiletries like soap to wash your hands. We were unable to have a shower due to shower tripping. Requested discount due to our inconvenience and was advised we should have said. Advised we...

£150 for THREE adults booking 2 nights does not seem too expensive! does it? you booked through Booking.com so lets break it down, lets deduct their fee for generating your booking at our hotel. In total we are charged 32% per booking (that includes VAT) So £150 take away 32% leaves £102 lets break that down a little more! £17...

“I have stayed in a few of their different rooms and all are comfortable. Some are bigger than others, i dont really care about the size since i dont go there to spend time in the room but if you wanted a bigger room just ask and if they accommodate they will. They have a nice sized family room at the top which i think can accommodate up to 5-6 people.”
