Thank you for your lovely review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. As Athelstane doesn't own a leaf blower we can only assume this came from our neighbours; we'll be sure to address this with them. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Warm regards, Laurel

Nice and clean, polite and friendly staff and great breakfast, however for the price it was a very small room. The lack of a full-length mirror (or indeed any mirror except in the bathroom) also made dressing for the wedding we were attending a challenge.

Hi, Thanks for your review! We're glad you enjoyed our breakfast and hospitality. We would have been more than happy to provide you with a full length mirror had we have known your requirement for one. Please don't hesitate to contact the guesthouse directly next time to ensure you get the best rate with the room amenities you require. Warm regards, Laurel
