  • "Great hospitality"

    02 May 2018

    "This guest house is run by very friendly and helpful hosts who provide clean, comfortable rooms and it's clear effort has been put into giving the place character. There are useful touches like shelf-space reserved for each room's own use in the communal fridge and an information area with lots of fliers on things to do in the area as well as menus for local restaurants. It is in a quiet area and although we could hear a bit of noise in our room from around the house at busy times it quietened down and didn't bother us at all during the night."
