We had a very warm welcome and Inge was so helpful telling us where to eat, explaining our next leg of the journey etc. Our breakfast was delicious and everything was very fresh. All in all,...

We stayed at On The Spot for three nights and had the most amazing time. The rooms are lovely, spacious and modern, pool area relaxing and breakfast every morning was spot on, great choice of fruit, yoghurts, toast and hot food. Inge was so lovely, interesting to talk to and helpful. Could not ask for more!!

This is an exceptional B & B. It is clean, comfortable, provided a nice breakfast with plenty of choice. The owner was welcoming and happy to give comment about local resources, e.g. restaurants. I regret not arranging to spend longer here.

We only stayed one night at On The Spot but everything was perfect - Inge works hard to ensure everything is just right – and it shows. The bed was one of the most comfortable, the fresh milk and sherry in the room were nice touches and the soft and fluffy robes were an unexpected luxury. Breakfast was one of... More

Having not done much research before booking I was slightly apprehensive about our stay at "On-The-Spot" But it was all for nothing, as upon arrival we were greeted by the hostess and owner, who took great pride in personally showing each person to their perfect and extremely well appointed individual rooms, explaining in details the working of everything. The rooms... More

My husband and I stayed in On the Spot guesthouse whilst we were building our home nearby. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable and the breakfast of high quality. The hospitality of the owners made us come back every time and we will certainly recommend anyone to make a booking... You will not be disappointed!
