Even though the owner seemed a bit nervous when I arrived, he was extremely friendly and welcoming. My ensuite room as a solo traveler was very comfortable and fit my needs. Breakfast was delicious. Free parking is available. Located in a quiet neighborhood about a 20-30 minute walk from City Centre. Buses run on the main street, which is just...

It was like walking into a time warp with bad mismatched decor. The bed was clean so we stayed as we were tired from travelling . The en suite was awful - very dusty and badly laid out.

Arriving by train early afternoon we were able to drop off our luggage(the room was ready) and be back in town by two o'clock - all by bus!! We made two nights into three days and had a most enjoyable stay.The rooms were spacious and comfortable and amazing value for money. I would certainly recommend this guesthouse.

Just returned from a 3 night stay. When I arrived I was met by Richard who gave me a map told me which buses would get me into the city and where to get them. I chose to walk there and back - I walk slowly so it took me about 30/35 minutes but if walking normal speed I would...
