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.

"Good location"
The guest house's exterior and lobby area are very nice but the rooms and bathroom are seriously in need of some TLC. The bedding was clean but very faded and the mattresses while fairly comfortable are lumpy and need to be replaced. Everything about the room was just tired. Read less
