While the location on a hill is a little challenging for those with limited mobility - the views it offered were excellent. Staff and accommodation was top notch. Food was fab and the standard of rooms was very high

Enchantingly elegant guesthouse. Beautiful, spacious feel to the rooms, and a lovely array of breakfasts to choose from in the morning, all the way from healthy to indulgent choices. The hospitality was excellent.

Nice spacious rooms, very tastefully decorated, great views, excellent service, great breakfast. One could not ask for a better guest house. The house is on top of a hill with a great view. Once I got directions it was an easy walk to town. When I did not want to walk the staff called me a taxi.
