Positive Reviews

Cheap And Where The Action Is

This B&B is fairly cheap and the location is great. It's close to the town centre and the ferries. There are some good restaurants around as well.

Old School Hospitality

The ambiance at the guest house is laid-back and casual. It's one of those places where you don't feel like you have to walk on egg shells. You can pretty much be yourself. The staff are friendly, helpful, and easygoing.

The Bar Is The Meeting Place

The bar is the gem of the B&B. It's where the people hang out, whether they stay at the guest house or a local from the area. The people are friendly and you can always have a good chat over a beer.

Negative Reviews

The Wi-Fi Is Iffy

The Wi-Fi is iffy inside the room. If you want a connection you either have to go to the stairway or down to the bar.

A Bit Rundown And Tacky

The inn is a bit  like Fawlty Towers! There's much that needs to be done that makes staying at the inn less than endurable. Electrical things tend do not function properly like the TV and electrical sockets. Damp walls, filthy windows, and peeling paint, and taped grimy carpeting will offend even the most tolerant individual. You may also find that the hot water is hard to adjust, no light bulbs in lamps, and tacky furnishings. It's like they've just let the place go.

Cash Is King

You'd better have some cash on hand as the inn does not accept cards. There are no ATMs close by either.
