Likes:
Very comfortable bed. Very pleasant staff.
Dislikes:
The price.
Response from Watson Lodge Guest House:
As we have already discussed with you via email, you booked a large family room online for single occupancy as this was the only room available. The price reflected the room you booked. I am glad that other aspects of your stay were acceptable.

"Good"
They provided the bedroom at the ground floor so that we could connect electrical power to my wife's electric mobility scooter over the window. They also provided gluten/wheat free food to my wife.

Only one disappointment is that as we are both profoundly deaf they tried to fix subtitling on the bedroom TV. Read less

Likes:
We were given the garden room, a self contained ground floor room. It was large, ensuite and very comfortable.
Dislikes:
There is no direct access to the garden room from the main building. You have to go out the front door and then round the corner.
