I enjoyed staying at Gooseberry Guest House. The place is beautiful, tasteful and neat. I enjoyed the ambience and the overall feel of it. My stay would have been even better, but for two things: I normally ask for a room with an own bathroom with a shower. I might have neglected to do so in my initial enquiry, so I am not sure. Be that as it may, my room had no shower, which was disappointing and inconvenient. Since I have no way of knowing for sure whether this was my fault or theirs, I have no choice but to leave the matter be. The other problem that I had was that I was in a room directly below a whole bunch of young ladies who were either having a party or a bridal shower or something similar. They were most inconsiderate and made a lot of noise, late into the night and from early on in the morning.- talking loudly, banging doors and generally causing a racket. This left me a bit disgruntled, although I suppose that Gooseberry cannot be held responsible for that. Other than these issues, my stay was fine.
