My husband and I stayed in On the Spot guesthouse whilst we were building our home nearby. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable and the breakfast of high quality. The hospitality of the owners made us come back every time and we will certainly recommend anyone to make a booking... You will not be disappointed!
