Not good
Breakfast. Owners willingness to refund. Close to good restaurants.
Room was very small. Electricity tripped a few times. TV reception and Chanel selection was poor. Old hotel. We booked out after the first night. Breakfast was very good. We had cold showers as there was no hot water.

Lots of character
Large, clean rooms, location, strong wifi
This guest house was great. Unfortunately, I only booked for one night and were unable to accommodate me for additional nights. They did, however, suggest another place which worked out nicely and even provided transportation to the new place. At Goble Palms, we received excellent service, the location was ideal (not too far from beach in a safe location), and the breakfast was fresh and offered fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, eggs, etc.
