A warm friendly atmosphere with clean rooms and a fantastic central location. Jarvis and Joan have taken care to make sure your stay is, quite simply stress free and hospitable. The breakfast was excellent and the freshly brewed strong coffee a nice touch. Above all the beautiful flowers in the lounge tells you how much they care.
