I wasn't expecting much from Clara House due to the bad reviews it's gotten recently, but I was pleasantly surprised. Throughout the booking process I'd come across a few glitches that made me wonder how legit the place was, especially as it is in the same building as Elvis Guesthouse (I'm still not quite sure how that works!) My room...

I suspect this place has changed hands fairly recently. The website shows someone very different from the young couple who are currently running it. The main difficulty I had was with the dirt. Cobwebs everywhere, very dirty carpets and lots and lots of mildew in the bathrooms. If you have allergies, or don't like nasty stuff sticking to your feet,...
