This place actually has three buildings; I stayed at the Rose Lodge at 28 Rose Street. There were two rooms upstairs and another one off the tiny courtyard. Downstairs is a small kitchen (where breakfast is made for you!) and a dining room - which is also the only reliable place you can get WiFi. My room was small, but comfortable and had a full bath with a nice shower. No toiletries are provided, but they change the towels daily. The proprietor, Bruce, was very helpful in arranging transportation to and from the airport.
The place is only staffed during certain hours, so you need to let them know when you are arriving. It is very safe. My only negative comment is that there is really no "lounge" or sitting area...you can sit in the dining room but this room is used by the staff during the day for ironing and other chores, so it is not very relaxing. In addition, the noise carries up the stairs, so if you try to have a rest in the afternoon, it is not very quiet.
However, the location and price cannot be beat and I would stay here again.
