    I stayed for one night and although small, the room and bathroom was clean, had quality linen and towels. The breakfast was good value for money and the staff were very eager to assist. I highly recommend this good value for money accommodation.

    Everything about Excellent Guesthouse is exactly that, Excellent! It wasn't my first visit and it most certainly won't be my last. Mr T's genuine hospitality, especially, is a treat. I highly recommended this home away from home.
