A lovely guest house in a great location. Close to shops, restaurants, etc, yet still nice & quiet. The room was bright & and airy. It had everything we needed & was comfortable. Breakfast was very nice & best of all, was our very friendly host Linda. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay! Steve & Tina.
