I travel a lot for work and stay all over, Remote Corner is one of the best guesthouses I’ve ever stayed it. Beautiful setting, lovely rooms, crisp,clean white linen and perfect breakfast. As it is also a simple self catering service, everything has been thought of. I’d even come here just to relax in the exquisite garden!

Stayed for one night for a work trip. We use this place often for work and it is the first choice. Little touches make it ideal with slippers, bath robe and the first guest house I've been to that gives actual milk and filter coffee!

We recently spent 3 nights at Remote Corner and had a wonderful time. It is really tranquil with lots of nooks and crannies in the garden perfect for a quiet read. The rooms are clean and the beds have crisp, clean sheets to slide between after a hard day. I loved the breakfast with its fresh fruit. Thank you Daryl and Helen for an amazing stay.

Truly a hidden gem! I usually stay in a hotel near the university but at the recommendation of a friend, tried the B & B. I am so glad that I did as it is a gorgeous gem of a place. I am not sure what room I stayed in but it had everything one could need including a small kitchenette. I tend to read in the evening and too often have found the bedside lamps to be inadequate but that was not the case here. The bed was so comfortable and warm that it was difficult to get up and go to work. Breakfast, served overlooking the fabulous garden, was delicious every morning. Darryl and Helen were attentive to every detail and I enjoyed getting some gardening and shopping tips. Remote Corner is a peaceful, relaxing, welcoming oasis in a busy city. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
