Clean and friendly
Good spacious accommodation at a reasonable price. Clean rooms and friendly staff.

The Guest house is not occupied by the owner, they have a intercom system and the key is left in an envelope for you to pick up on entering. The bathroom was dirty with dust on the bathroom mirror (Wiped to clear mist whilst shaving) and a non-secured sink in the bathroom. The hot water boiler broke during our stay. the one day we did get clean fresh towels, they too were marked. There was hair in our bed (clean sheets tho). No room service Saturday morning.

Awful! Disrespectful! Terrible Service!
Do not book or stay with this hotel! After booking (and paying), I was requested by the owner to move hotels to the nearby sister hotel "The Thrums" due to an "operational issue". Trusting that the hotel was equivalent and with limited time to search for something else, I agreed. The room we were put in was awful- small, dingy, stains on the carpet, mold in the shower (see photo), exposed nails (see photo), peeling vinyl floor. in the "ensuite". I contacted the owner by email requesting a partial refund given the obvious downgrade from what was booked as a 4 star room to what I would rank as a 1 star room and have been greeted by radio silence owner . We were ripped off! Do not stay at either the MW Townhouse or Thrums! Photos nothing like what was advertised.

Very nice room on ground floor, big and very clean and quiet. Hosts very nice although not around much after am. One thing check out should be at 11 not 10 and breakfast is too early as well. Otherwise good choice.
