10/10 Exceptional

Great location, but needs some things organised
The room was clean and the location is great, just around the corner from bars. because of Covid, he had no reception anymore, neither breakfast was served but we could just help ourself. which i didn't minded neither. but then all necessary things in the kitchen has to be provided and as well everything should be cleaned every morning, and not only in the afternoon, same as dishwasher, is turned on in the evening, but never emptied. as i did it. but i still would stay again, just because of the great location

Quirky guesthouse that I loved from the 1st minute
Quirky guesthouse that I loved from the 1st minute I arrived. Rooms were beautiful with big bed and cool old fashioned bath in large en-suite. Breakfast was good too, with cereal, eggs, rashers and mushrooms. Melville is a trendy town and good bars are within,100 m of the guesthouse.

There was a mouldy smell in my room which made it difficult to breathe. Linen and towels were clean but towels were hard and had a tear. The communal kitchen also had a bar smell, a mix of old oil and a gas leak. staff were friendly. I didn't stay for breakfast.

Dirty place
The place was very dirty. The shower was very inconvenient because it was in the bath and water was all over the room when taking a shower. The dog nearly bite me and the cats follow guests. Breakfast was acceptable. There was loud noise on daily basis from the neighbouring place.
