I must admit that it took me a few days to warm to Egan's house. On arrival we were tired after a long trip and had to cart our suitcases up a very narrow staircase to get to our room. Our room was tiny with nowhere to store our cases and we tripped over them moving around the bed for our entire stay. To park ourside the guest house cost extra however the alternative was to use the local pay and display option or to attempt to find free car parking a few streets away. Breakfast was also not included in the price but for a small fee you could get a reasonably substantial buffet breakfast although the serving area was a bit cramped and hot food was not always available. The guest house is situated in a quiet area however is quite a walk from the centre of the town. Buses are available and frequent but you have to have the exact fare as the driver cannot give you change. On a positive note, the staff are extremely helpful and they couldn't do enough for us. The reception desk is well staffed. The residents lounge was my favourite. A large, cosy homely room with free tea and coffee available was an ideal place to wind down at the end of a long day of sight seeing. I would return to this guest house.
Our stay at the Acara House was absolutely wonderful! From the minute my daughter and I got there until we left, Elizabeth was both warm and friendly and always willing and anxious to make us feel comfortable. The room was was very neat, clean and cozy and was tidy upon all of our returns. Elizabeth was always available to help or give advice and even went out our her to way to help us with our parking. I recommend this B&B to anyone who wants a wonderful stay in a convenient location and a very gracious host. She serves up a wonderful breakfast on request or has plenty of fresh fruit, cereals, bread, juice, coffee and jams or jelllies. Thank you Elizabeth for making our stay a memorable one!
