    A boost of upgrading the decor together with a better cleaning of the rooms would lift the place. A better attitude from the staff/ owners? when asking for appropriate service would also lift the atmosphere. I will never stay there again and being a foreigner...More

    Great service, the owners were really friendly and engaging. Not your typical hotel - this one brings an element of warmth and homeliness to your stay. The location is close enough to the sea. Will definitely be staying again.

    Great hosts and a warm welcome on arrival. Room was clean and had all you needed. Unfortunately I had to cut my trip short due to circumstances beyond my control. Both the ladies were very understanding. It was a shame I couldn't stay longer.
