It was a lovely place and the breakfast was yummy! It was homely BUT the location is a bit dangerous and parking space was small.

Lovely home feeling. Comfortable and relaxed. I would certainly stay again.

It's a nice and warm guest house but maybe the owner would think of proper cleaning of the bar area outside. It was filthy hence me and my family could not utilise it.

We enjoyed our stay and the house is a nice old wooden floored beauty in a great central location close to downtown and opposite the Botanical Gardens. Stacy welcomed us very nicely and Lilly the caretaker made us tasty breakfast each morning and was very friendly. Only problem was the noise. Our room was only a thin wooden door away from the main breakfast dining room and we were woken up very early every day by the preparation and eating of breakfast. Also, the dogs barked and whined at all hours.

I stayed here for 3 nights. Overall, the stay was comfortable, but it's the service that is missing big time. I felt like I was more in a self catering lodge, rather than a bed and breakfast place - for example, no staff was available when I arrived, rather I received instructions on phone on how to get to my room. On all days, I felt as if I was served breakfast more as an obligation - I had to ask for extra toast, coffee, etc. Eventually, I got what I wanted, but got this un-welcome feeling at all times.
