I only stayed for 2 nights, but was very happy with the quality of the place. Comfortable en suite bedroom and delicious home-cooked breakfast in the morning. Also, fairly well-located- roughly 5-10 min walk into town center. Would certainly stay again on future trips.

He provided plenty of information about the local area, restaurants and amenities and even offered a collection of vouchers. The entire building is tastefully presented and cleaned to perfection. The breakfast also reflects the hosts eye for perfection with... More

“We were in Room 1 which is directly over the kitchen. This wasn't a problem to us, but if you don't like been woken up early. perhaps rooms 2 or 3 would be more better. Reason you get a bit a noise when they start cooking breakfasts.”
