Exceptional 10.0
The Butterfly Guesthouse was a great place to stay, well located for walking as well as bus routes. It was clean, well kept, and quiet; the owner was available and responsive to guest's needs. I really enjoyed my stay and highly recommend it.

Excellent place to stay!
This guest house was great! While the bathroom is small, it was great having one in our room. The location is perfect. Free parking is available 1/2 a block away, and the city center is an easy walk in the other direction. The kitchen is spacious with everything you need to cook or eat a light breakfast with the cereal and coffee/tea available.

Good 6.0
Breakfast was a joke!
We met the owner, John, after we had checked ourselves in. Never saw him again and we were there 2 nights. There was a communal kitchen. The B&B ad said breakfast was included but there was only cereal , bread, and some cheese on the refrigerator door. The supplies were not replenished and there were 6 of us on the second floor. The biscuits in the cookie jar were stale. The place is old, but the price was right and it was close to walking to bus stop #1 and to restaurants etc. No TV in room. Bed was very uncomfortable. We would have enjoyed a bit moreTLC. We had some questions but our phones did not work , so we could not call the owner.

perfect affordable spot
Perfect affordable spot- clean, great location, very helpful host. would definitely stay again. tip: double check to see if you have a shared bathroom, if this is important to you. for us it worked out fine- we didn't even have to wait to use the bathroom and our fellow guests were clean, but we were surprised, which was evidently my fault.

Great, friendly, comfortable & centrally located
A great place to stay, central to all amenities and places to visit. The host, Jon was friendly and in fact, right from the start ,all the Butterfly hosts were very communicative and informative. The room we had was clean and the beds comfortable. We enjoyed the informal kitchen place for breakfast etc and the communal fridge was very well stocked with butter, milk and other goodies. I highly recommend this wonderful guesthouse .
