The Ashdown House guesthouse was a great place to stay, very nice and peaceful stay. The staff were all very polite and helpful, breakfast was great and generally couldn't have asked for more. Would definitely recommend.

Ashdown house has a natural tranquillity that creates a perfect environment for work or a break while visiting the city. The rooms and facilities are of a high quality with a personalised service provided by well trained staff that maintains privacy while supporting individual requirements.

It's been our second time at Ashdown and it won't be our last. Staff and atmosphere are friendly, a beautiful property with very nice rooms, especially the luxurious, African-styled bathrooms are my favourite. Ashdown serves a wonderful breakfast with a hug variety of fruits, teas, eggs, etc.
