Art Lovers is an excellent B&B , Garden is really nice. Security is very good. Points to be improved : Internet acces(Wi-fi) cannot be arranged outside office hours. A small table or working desk in the bedroom would be nice.

We chose this gem from a list of dozens on the internet and so glad we did. Booking was simple on the internet and finding the guest house was easy enough. Richard welcomed us on arrival and showed us to our splendid room. The décor throughout is gorgeous with crystals and mosaic in every nook and cranny. The main are... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Art Lovers Guesthouse. Our room was absolutely lovely with every convenience you can imagine. We also enjoyed breakfast in the amazing garden. But above all the service from the staff was the best we ever had! Thank you!

We had a large function for friends & family (30+ people) at this venue. The service was excellent. The owner's daughter organised everything for us and went to great lengths to make it very special - nothing was too much to ask! The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and enough to feed a small army. We... More

I have stayed at this guest house a few times now and it is absolutely beautiful. I would however recommend that the owners address the lighting in Room 1 which was the room we stayed in now in October. It does not have sufficient lighting but other than that the overall experience has been great. Highly recommended.

Beautiful place! Would have like the option of pre-booking dinner though. Since all of the eateries are closed on Mondays and Tuesday or close early on these days, we had to make do with take-aways in the evenings. Maybe offer guest options for dinner that can be pre-ordered?
