Excellent guest house. Visited for one night with work colleague. Both our rooms were spacious, recently refurbished and immaculate. Continental breakfast only, but fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast available - more than enough. Parking at back was very handy. Landlord (Kenny) really friendly and helpful. Great value for money. Would definitely recommend, compared to paying over the odds for an inferior...

Although the guest house is in a great location - only a short walk into town - it is in desperate need of updating. The carpets are very worn and the curtains in our room must have been from the 80's. A little bit of time to update the rooms (including a comfy bed) would really improve the overall feel...

Can't recommend highly enough. Fantastic room, very clean, owners are so friendly and made me feel welcome from the outset. No cooked breakfast but there's a microwave and you can bring your own food to cook whenever it suits you and eat it in the dining room. I've booked again and would say anyone looking for accommodation should look here...
