Very comfortable, well equipped, clean, excellent catering, but had a problem the first night with excessive noise from the main building, but the contact (Colin) was out of town and the other contact (Esther) did not answer her phone. I had to resolve the problem myself. Evidently no staff stay on the premises at night. The next morning Felicity was very apologetic about the incident, as were the other staff members, but, I have yet to get any contact from either Colin or Esther.
Surely there should be someone on site overnight to resolve any issues / problems, or at any rate within easy access to the property - and be available. What if a serious problem occurs - must guests take matters into their own hands; who would be held responsible for any damage etc.
Other than this incident, I would go back as I was very impressed with Acorn.

On our way to the Guest House, weve phoned several times to arrange for a late check in, but all in vain. We rang Safari to explain our problem, and the Acorn return our call. The lady explained to us that we arent booked with them, but with 17 Wellington st. That was just not on!!!. We went to 17 Wellington st , to check in. All went well, and the new accommodation was really good. willie, the manager was really helpfull with a lot of info and advice of the area. I will defnitely make use of the facility again.
However, I did not appreciate Acorn ignoring us like they did, especially after accepting our money
What a lovely experience!

Our stay at Acorn was fantastic, really enjoyed our stay in this much older/ almost historic house with it`s wooden floors and authentic furniture.
The service was flawless.

We had a lovely stay at the Acorn Guest House. Amor was very kind and welcoming to us. The guest house itself is beautifully decorated, the rooms clean and warm.

One of the best stay overs away from home that we've experienced. The room and the whole atmosphere is wonderful and beautiful. What can I say more it was fantastic.

We really had a fantastic time in George and thanks to Esther we got to explore places we wouldn't have. She really went out of her way to make us feel at home and always ready to assist.We will surely recommend Acorn to friends visiting George. Close to all the action. We believe that the breakfast/lunch box Esther made for us when we left was very kind and unheared off. Many guest houses do not do that especially if you leave at 5 in the morning. Thank you
