The other reviews of this guest house are all so positive that I wonder quite why our experience didn't live up to expectations. We just didn't take to this place at all. We found it well located, certainly, but the rooms were very dated and tired. We booked two rooms, the one at the top of the house with the steep staircase for our children, and one at the bottom of the staircase for us. The children's room had a bath but the bathroom had a very low ceiling and no warning signs - there were a lot of sore bumped heads. Our room had the smallest en suite we have ever encountered, which got damp and smelly because of the weedy extractor fan. It was almost impossible to move around in it and it took an age to get hot water to the shower, which then came and went as it felt like it. And the towels were very small. The bedroom was very small indeed and while it looked generally clean, it was actually quite dusty and there was mould on the wall above the window. The carpets could have done with a good clean. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, although I have never tasted such awful orange juice in my life. We were also billed a different rate than we had been quoted on the phone. And the television reception in both rooms was very poor - only two channels were watchable.
On a separate note, we had lunch at the ceramics cafe in the centre of the main street and it was lovely - home cooked delicious food.
