Excellent B&B situated 10-15 mins from the city centre with buses running every 20mins just around the corner. Type of 3 different breakfasts on a morning to suit everyone..we of course went for traditional with all the works and it was beautiful! Welcoming staff and clean tidy room..would highly recommend and will be staying here again in the future. :D

This was such a lovely place. Located in about 15 minutes away by bus to Old/New Town, this place is quiet, well kept and well run. For an extremely affordable price, you get individualized attention and breakfast daily. And I do mean a full breakfast, not just pastries and coffee. Staff go out of their way to make your stay...

What does everyone want from a guest house? A warm welcome; a clean and comfortable room and bed; a tasty and ample breakfast and friendly staff. All these needs are needs are met by the Garfield. I was not recommended to it personally but am happy to do so to others.

Similarly, Michelle washed and ironed some of my clothes,...
