We had a really great time. Rlaf was super welcoming. He took a personal interest in his guests. He helped where ever he could. The rooms have a decent size. Are always clean and organized. Great that it has a fridge and a safe. We felt home away from home and can only recommend this place to anyone one visiting... More

This B&B is perfect for an easy-going, leisure stay with a personal touch, confortable rooms and a friendly welcome from the host, Ralf, who has kept the instalations in mint condition and makes sure you are well-looked after. Great for quick access to the town and transport links to the beach, it's also quiet and the breakfast is a winner,... More

In general a very well located guest house with lots of charm and friendly owner and staff. They serve a lovely continental breakfast outside in summer. This guest house is more for visitors on a relaxing holiday as it is a problem getting breakfast served earlier than 8h30 if you are staying over for business and have a hectic schedule.

We enjoyed a 4-day stay at the Little Lemon Tree. Our room, in the main house, with big, private balcony was lovely: wooden floors, beautiful colours, comfortable bed, great shower. Not sound-proof, but the atmosphere of the house and the place makes up for that. The beautiful and creatively designed garden, is also a nice place to spend some time.... More

The little Lemon Tree has everything that you are looking for. Great location, very nice, spacious and clean rooms. Huge breakfast attacking your waistline and great guests. Why is this B&B different than others ? I can only tell from my own experience that the difference is caused by the proprietor Ralf. The Little Lemon Tree has besides all the... More

I spent only one night here, but it sure was a good choice. My room was neat and very clean. Ralf and team were great hosts, friendly, and always willing to accommodate the guests. Nice atmosphere around the guest house.
