The Hostess was so accommodating and helpful in providing suggestions for what to see in the area. The breakfasts were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this clean, safe, central location.

Home away from home! I was comfortable and felt welcome. The guesthouse was very accommodating when I needed to extend my stay. I was served a hearty breakfast every morning that kept me satisfied the whole day!

This is a great place to stay. Very quiet and very local to the area. The room we had (5) was perfect on the 1st floor. Good sized room with ensuite and also a small cooking area (Microwave toaster) and a small fridge. Lisa the host was just great, in welcoming us and also in giving us the local talk. Very useful. There is a small pool for us (we did not actually use it), and breakfast is in a room overlooking the pool area. Breakfast is good with a good selection and a great cooked breakfast done to order.

Ours was a short overnight stay. Comfortable room with good friendly service from Lisa and all of the staff. Excellent breakfast. One area that needed attention was the shower in the room which was not operating correctly and was a small inconvenience.
