Stayed one night here, travelling on business. What a little gem, I received a warm welcome and everyone was very friendly. My room was clean, very comfortable and had everything one could need. The breakfast was fantastic, freshly cooked and well presented. A small guesthouse run very professionally and to a high standard, Well done, I'd definitely recommend.
