Positive Reviews

Stunning and immaculate property.

Even the most seasoned travellers have their expectation of this guest house exceeded upon arrival. The facilities are all modern, while the rooms provide plenty of space. On top of this is a sparkling clean property that impresses everyone.

Friendly atmosphere.

The owners running Karrawa Guest House are very accommodating and attentive to all their guests. With lots of local information on hand, they are always happy to share a store or a recommendation.

High quality breakfast food.

Karrawa Guest House offers lots of choice when it comes to breakfasts. Not only are guests treated to a variety, but delicious food too.

Negative Reviews

A tough walk for those without a car.

This guest house has a central location, allowing residents to reach anything they need on foot. That walk is a bit challenging though as the residence is located up a steep hill. Without much public transportation available, guests without a personal vehicle will be wearing their legs out.

Morning meals are a bit too early.

While the food is usually a highlight, some guests feel the service could be tweaked. Morning meals are cooked early, which means people who want a bite won't be able to sleep in. Other guests aren't keen on having to put in an order the night before.

Lacking a common area.

One thing that is really missing according to reviews is a lounge or other place for guests to interact during their stay at Karrawa Guest House. Without a common area then guests are forced to spend all their time in the private rooms while on the property.
