guesthouse is very nicely furnitured; friendly staff; nice atmosphere/ambiente; unfortunately the reception is not 24hs occupied; there is a number you can call or ring a bell, but when you reach someone (not always), it will take a while for him to get there; WLAN only at the reception and didn't always work

I really liked this hotel! Instead of Waterfront i really think you should stay in Seapoint.The breakfast is a little bit too expensive though. The rooms are nice, but you could here the other guests quite well! Overall i recommend this hotell and i would stay here again!

I am going to save space and time here. For the full review see the Sweet Olive review as it ties in with this one. there is no air conditioning in the upstairs room in which we stayed and to ask for a second fan really taxed the evening manager. Also we were told that if we wanted to use... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a lovely stay. The room was nice and clean and nicely decorated in traditional style. The bathroom was big and had a lovely shower and there was a little patio with a sunbed. There was also the use of a communal area which had a kitchen and a tv and some magazines.... More

On arrival we had a warm welcome and help with our bags. During check in we were given a welcome drink and a map guide of the local area and restaurants. Our bags were taken to our room in a cottage over the road from the main building. Our room had an authentic African style and with the honesty bar... More

Supervision should be improved. We pointed out some lightbulbs not working, well they were still not changed by the time we left. Generally we had a very pleasant stay and can also recommend the breakfast.

Great place to stay very quiet, could be a little warm if temps get hot, fan , no AC. Otherwise great to sit out in outdoor space. On closed street so very quiet, no traffic, turning around tight because of alll the parked cars. Bed was huge and very comfortable.

Dear Philip B, Your review is very much appreciated. During your stay in February this year we had the hotest days since 100years, when they started to monitor the weather in CT.
