Thank you for a great stay and for being so understanding and helpful with all the changes. The antiques made the stay memorable, even if the bed was a little short for a very tall man. We hope to see you again.

The only problem was the wiring on the heater in the main room was faulty.The location is in easy walking distance of the shops and restuarants. We had dinner at JC,s which was excellent even though we had to wait a bit for our food
