We stayed for three nights towards the end of December 2011, looking for a quiet few nights away.
The Guest House (with Breakfast included) is situated on a busy-ish road, however the care that the owners have taken to install secondary glazing reduces the noise to a perfectly acceptable minimum.
We got the feeling that the current proprietors acquired the business in the last few years and have dealt with all the main problems that the property may have had upon their purchase - secondary glazing, new televisions, re-furbished bathrooms. The overall décor of the property remains relatively tired, however, and some previous owner appears to have shown great aptitude in removing any sense of character he/she could find.
BUT... The current owners clearly have their hearts in the right place and, with further support from customers, I do hope they will get the opportunity to continue their efforts to bring the rooms fully into the 21st century. There is also an amount of 'you get what you pay for', in our case £75 per night.
Breakfasts are very good with every effort made to accommodate complicated requests. We also noticed unspoken gestures where the owners tried to make our stay more comfortable - oiling the squeaky sign outside, for example.
Overall, very good Guest House with great potential for the future.
I know that the owners read their Trip Advisor reviews, so I do hope you find this review fair, Jimmy and Charlotte. Many thanks for your warm hospitality.
