Your manager and staff were extremely hospitable. loved your rooms just needed more toilet soap though. In a beautiful quiet area. It's a pity you don't have a variety of restuarants. The town seems to "close" by eight at night. Overall though we had n awesome experience. Definitely will come back

Stunning guest house! The bedrooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast was awesome and the staff were friendly and helpful! There is a beautiful garden and a cozy quaint pub with a 60 year old snooker table! We will definitely return!

collected money in advance for 4 nights despite the fact that we booked for 3.
When we asked for a refund they said that they had to retain an amount to cover the commission they have to pay to the advertising agent which total rubbish. As everybody knows commissions are not the customer / visitor / guest problem.
to our email asking for a refund they answered "good luck"!!!!!

accomodation is definately not 4 stars!!! maybe 1

Response from Dawn G, Owner at Royal Sheba Guesthouse
Responded 24 May 2016
Royal Sheba Guesthouse is under new ownership. Could you perhaps be so kind as to remove your post as this has nothing to do with new owners and makes our rating very low. Will be much appreciated. Dawn
