Service With A Smile.
Nicely central for the town. A small car park but we had no problem parking. If it was full you would struggle due to the obvious parking restrictions in the town. Both the room and the en-suite were reasonably spacious on the top floor, and very clean. Considering that our room faced the main road it was surprisingly quiet at night. The cooked breakfast was very tasty, with cereals also available, but no fresh fruit on offer. There were various canned type fruits though. Service was 'with a smile' which is always good!

The guesthouse is situated in a sidestreet opposite a recreation ground and near a church, so is quiet compared to the main road nearby which was busy with non-stop traffic due to the Easter holiday when I stayed. I booked a single room but was upgraded to a double-bed room upon arrival. The view from the window was pleasant, overlooking the sidestreet, church and recreation ground. The breakfasts were good on all 4 mornings of my stay, with plenty to choose from. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I was able to park my small car in the car-park, but there was no spare space at all, what with it being busy at Easter.
