Great stay; would book again.
We had a great time staying at The Atlas Guesthouse. One drawback is lack of parking- but we paid to park behind the hotel, which was fine. You need to book to park.behind the premises. The accommodation was lovely. The website did mention Room Service- but it has changed ownership and is no longer an option. However, the Proprietor was very helpful. The addition of a toaster might help for a quick breakfast. Having said that, we found a cafe close by which served a breakfast.

It’s very worthy hotel. Staff is friendly and helpful. The room is quiet big for this price and very clean. Location is good , just 10mins walk to city center. But the bathroom model kinda small. And the mirror just above the toilet, I dropped two items into the toilet. Really recommend move the mirror.
