A fantastic place to stay! The room was clean and tidy with a beautiful view. The bathroom had a walk-in shower and bathtub. Anita and Denis were incredibly helpful and friendly. They did everything to make sure we had a comfortable stay. Breakfast was freshly made each morning and absolutely delicious!
