A new hotel set in a quiet, leafy environment with well designed, attractive rooms. We have 14 rooms, all en suite with hot water, including 2 larger executive rooms, 10 double rooms and 2 rooms with twin beds. TVs are being fitted in all rooms. The prices of the rooms are considerably lower than our direct competitors. We have a good restaurant and a garden bar, as well as a conference room.
