The room was clean and spacious, The breakfast area is simply fantastic with perhaps the best view? A gigantic breakfast, free bicycles, he has a shop useful for snacks/cold drinks, he is a mine of information and a very humble character! I would recommend staying here!

The owner cooks a lovely meal in the evening which is eaten on one long table so it's good to meet other people too. The Sri...
