My partner and I had four lovely nights in the Platinum Guesthouse. The proprietor Andreas was friendly, helpful and very knowledgable about the best places to eat/visit in the area.

We were very disappointed in this accommodation. It is not cheap. And even though it is 4 star rated, the finishes in our rooms were very ordinary. No views from our rooms, There wasn't even coffee in the rooms. Jacob was very friendly.
