We stayed at Kingsley Guest House for 3 nights in August 2013. We had a nice room on the 3rd floor although the bathroom and shower were rather small. The bed was comfortable, the breakfasts were adequate, the proprietor was friendly and helpful. Improvements could include a luggage rack to put a suitcase on, towel racks in the bathroom, shampoo and conditioner and shower gel, facecloths. Lyn, the proprietor, gave us a lot of information, much of it very useful such as which buses to take downtown and back as well as directions to the nearby mall where we were able to buy some groceries at Sainsbury's. The reason I gave this place 3/5 rather than 4/5 is because I found that Lyn was rather stand-offish and even seem offended by some of our questions and comments. She didn't know where the Mercat Cross was or the bus stop at Waterloo Place nor did she seem to understand what a vegan meal was. She recommended only one tour bus company and I had to do my own research to find others. Perhaps she wanted to make sure her guests had privacy, but I would have welcomed some chatting in the breakfast dining room in the morning - it's one of the reasons I like to stay at B&B's.
