The hosts are friendly and the breakfasts are good too. Reading the other reviews on this site though, I'm really surprised by the number of them giving generic... More

My wife and I stayed here in August during the festival season, and were met by Edna and Forbes, who were so friendly, and cook up a mean breakfast!! The accomodations were clean and airy and the staff extremely helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone, and my wife and I will be back!!

What an excellent B&B. Edna the host along with Phillipo were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were well equipped and very clean. The accommodation was central to transport and was only a short bus trip to the attractions. I highly recommend this property to all travelers. Regards Shane
