The breakfasts were very...

Gordon's Bay guest house is a nice place with friendly helpful owners. I believe they have only recently taken over and there is something of a feeling of the place being in a transistional phase. Though very acceptable now, I think as they seem to have the right approach, the guest house is likely to develop well further. I took...

When we arrived, we were told that their card machine is not functional and they just took over from previous owners. We were put in a room away from the house, which was okay.
