Very friendly well maintained establishment. Room was clean and well furnished and supplied. Food was of an excellent quality and varied from one day to the next, even a request for an item not on the menu was provided without any trouble.

Beautiful artwork throughout the house. We had a quiet room at the back of the property with a small terrace and views of the garden and mountains as well as easy access to a small pool. Bed was very comfortable with a choice of 3 pillows! Good breakfast and very friendly hosts and staff. Would definitely stay again.

This B&B is exactly what we were looking for! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room big and comfortable. Everything we needed was provided, including a microwave and fridge. My child really enjoyed the pool with its curtained hideaways, while I loved the private balcony. It's very close to the walking path along the coast, where we enjoyed...

Property is on the eastern edge of a very long town! We had a ground floor room which was large, with a small kitchen area. It was quiet if a bit dark. The décor is tired but the place is comfortable. The host was helpful and gave advice about visiting the penguins at Bettys Bay.

I made the booking via the internet and was a little disappointed that the mountain view was not to be. Nevertheless, our short stay was very pleasant. One other disappointment was our breakfast. We had no choice in deciding which breakfast to take and was served a kind of a frittata only to find that guests at the adjoining table...
