Great B and B only 2 rooms so very small but with friendly owner, excellent breakfast, close to centre and station plaza restaurants. This standard of accommodation would have cost alot more in the uk. Bedroom furnished to an excellent standard, you could tell the owners had put alot of time and effort into this place.

I stayed in the top room which meant two flights of (steep) stairs to the toilet/shower which was a little bit inconvenient. Breakfast was nice, good... More
