This was my second stay at the Lodge on Main guesthouse. The owner and staff are really welcoming and helpful. I enjoyed the tasteful decor and living areas available to guests. The Lodge on Main is well situated to get around the city easily. My room was spacious and kitted with everything I needed. Breakfast was good too!

Guest house is very central and close to restaurants and shops. I had problems with water and couldn't shower one morning until we figured out how the water works. If the room next to me flushed the toilet or use the shower my water just stopped. Even when I flushed the toilet while waiting for the shower water to warm up the water stopped and only came back on a while after toilet was flushed. The rooms are well kitted out my carpets was just full of stains and the room had a very mouldy smell.
