Superb 9.2 From 31 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect for the price
This will never get the number of stars common sense dictates as it has a communal bathroom and it is not a new build. It was great, the host was super helpful and had loads of assistance with trips. Little things like there being free food with the use of the kitchen helped loads. For the price it is perfect in a very expensive place. Thoroughly recommended.

The Butterfly Guesthouse was a great place to stay, well located for walking as well as bus routes. It was clean, well kept, and quiet; the owner was available and responsive to guest's needs. I really enjoyed my stay and highly recommend it.

Excellent place to stay!
This guest house was great! While the bathroom is small, it was great having one in our room. The location is perfect. Free parking is available 1/2 a block away, and the city center is an easy walk in the other direction. The kitchen is spacious with everything you need to cook or eat a light breakfast with the cereal and coffee/tea available.

Good 6.0
Breakfast was a joke!
We met the owner, John, after we had checked ourselves in. Never saw him again and we were there 2 nights. There was a communal kitchen. The B&B ad said breakfast was included but there was only cereal , bread, and some cheese on the refrigerator door. The supplies were not replenished and there were 6 of us on the second floor. The biscuits in the cookie jar were stale. The place is old, but the price was right and it was close to walking to bus stop #1 and to restaurants etc. No TV in room. Bed was very uncomfortable. We would have enjoyed a bit moreTLC. We had some questions but our phones did not work , so we could not call the owner.
