We booked a studio and was impressed by how clean, spacious and comfortable it was. The kitchenette was well- equipped and the bed was super comfortable. Barbara, the manager, was fantastic from the moment we checked in. She suggested tours run by local companies when we asked and even booked a tour that my husband and I were interested in.... More

Barbara went out of her way to make sure we (as travellers) were welcome. She showed us places on the map and places for young people as well. The room was clean, tidy and neat and extremely comfortable. There was a personal touch which made the room feel very homey. There is a dvd library available that was great for... More

HI Sandy Thank you for such a lovely review. It is great to read the positive comments. You are right about the TV, long story short, it was a temporary as we had a DVD issue with the regular TV. So I had to put a replacement on the bracket whilst sourcing a new TV. Thank you, for making a... More

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment for 3 nights during early October 2014. From the momemt we checked in Barbara could not have been more helpful, she is certainly a big reason for staying here. The apartment itself was comfortable, clean and included a full kitchen. It appeared to have been recently decorated as did some of the outside. Location... More

Barbara is doing a great job. We were very happy with our stay. A very homely place, and just what we wanted. If you are looking for self contained accommodation this is ideal. We were helped with ideas on what to see and do for our few days there.
