Breakfast is included, which adds a nice touch. If you're leaving in the afternoon or the evening and don't keep the room, you're invited to use the top-floor shower (bring your own towel) to refresh... More

This guest house is run by a lovely father figure, Mr Xavier, who is a delightful chap. Staff are very friendly. My room was very pink in colour, but had all the things you need, including some decorative touches such as lamps, TV, vases of flowers (not real) to make it more pleasant. Included breakfast was simple, toast, jam, tea,... More
