The travellers who wrote a good review of Ralph (the owner) must have met a different Ralph.
Clearly booking and pre-paying your room is no a guarantee of a room here. We arrived tired from a long C2C hike to met by a scrawled note on the door to call Ralph. We finally contacted him only to be told he had no room for us and he had called someone to drive us to another Hotel. When queried he advised he had given our room to someone else as" she had not liked her Hotel". Why that was now our problem was mystifying. Ralph had called "a friend with a Van" to take us to alternate accommodation (much further our of town). When we insisted we were not comfortable with his arrangement and would call the Tour company for advice our room magically became available. l The room was nice enough but 2 wasted hours of negotiation was exhausting. Can not recommend this Guest House as Ralph cannot be relied upon .
