Fantastic Hosts, great location, superb breakfast, my room was just what I expected and little bit more with nice touches, will definitely stay there again, that's if its not booked up, overall can not be faulted.

I stayed at the cartwheel Guest house for 6 nights at the end of September. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable, and an excellent breakfast was provided which kept me going all day. Nigel and Debra were very friendly and approachable hosts. I would certainly stay at the Cartwheel again.

Found this place on the internet, no recommendations or anything but thought "I'll take a chance"......Excellent, can't fault it in any way shape or form. Close to town, on street parking, spotless room but most of all a really friendly welcome from Nigel and Debra. Will always stay here in the future.

This place is among the best in town! Warm, inviting and a great location. I'd be more than happy to stay again. Nigel and Debra are experts on the local area, on both the many walks/sights as well as where to eat and drink. Also, theres a fantastic breakfast, made with great local ingredients.
