We stayed in the cottage room a few weeks ago and loved it. It's absolutely gorgeous - colorful, vibrant, fun, funky - with a large kitchen and terrace in addition to a substantial living room and an beds for 6 people. Loved it! Would have enjoyed a tub but otherwise pretty perfect.

We booked a double room in this lovely guesthouse. The reservation manager gave us a 5% discount which was a great start. When we arrived the housekeeper offered us some coffee and not even 2 min later there was another person coming for the check in. They really take time to explain the guesthouse, the restaurants as well as good... More

Clean and beautiful bedrooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Parking was a bit of an issue as the guesthouse is situated in a narrow, short road, but we managed OK. Did not make use of the breakfast service, but we wrere able to make coffee in the kitchen.

When we arrived at Sweet Lemon Boutique B&B, my husband and I were a little shocked! Our room was right next to the common dining space, it was tiny and not at all sound proof. We woke up to noise coming from upstairs through the wooden floor boards or coming through our door. Good thing was we stayed out most... More

The breakfast were absolutely so not fresh! The shuttle taxi for airport on the day we left came 30 min late! They even charge us for the wifi. Felt some kind of irresponsible attitude on their staff.
