Detailed Reviews
Colin H wrote a review Jan 2020

I enjoyed my two night stay at Carpe Diem House, which is located in a quiet and leafy street close to the Anglican Church and the town centre. Everything I needed was available and I found the bed most comfortable. Wi-fi connectivity was very good. I met one of the hosts only once when checking in but as they live in another part of the house, I could easily have contacted them had I needed anything. I would certainly consider staying at Carpe Diem House again and would happily recommend it to fellow travellers. In my view it offers excellent value for money, given its location, size and self-catering facilities.
