Our room was spotless, well equipped and with a very comfortable bed. The breakfasts are delicious with a very good choice, and are very well cooked. There is a very pleasant... More

Yes, there are a few places that you can see are badly damaged from the flooding, but from the news you'd think that the whole of the South... More

The interior was very homely, tastefully decorated and exceptionally... More
