    Pay a bit more and stay in better location

    Host's were friendly but room wasnt cleaned/ replenished one day. Room was tiny and bathroom was even tinier would struggle if i was any larger. Guy in next room kept me awake every night coughing his guts up 24/7 could hear through walls. Other guest houses are doing breakfast but this place isnt- very dissapointing

    Would recommend

    Very clean guest house with lovely owner. Made to feel very welcome. The accommodation was relatively simple but what you would expect for the price. A few difficulties with the parking situation - there is not really enough space for all the cars. Also, the 'continental breakfast' was a little disappointing, though this may just be due to limitations of Covid.

    Blossom fading?

    Room was fine and on-site car parking very useful, but substitute continental breakfast - apparently due to Covid-19 restrictions was very disappointing.
