    vocabulary again

    When talking about guests that come year after year is it right to refer to them as the old guests (meaning they have been coming continuously ) or would an old guest mean just an older person?

    thanx

    'Regular visitors/guests' would be appropriate. 'Old guests' does conjure up an image of older people.
