We had a great stay at this luxury B&B. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. Our suite was beautiful with a gorgeous large bathroom. The common areas were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We definitely recommend this B&B

A boutique hotel with only 5 rooms (and a conference room) makes for really very personal service. The manager, Mareaze, really put herself out to assist us preparing an early breakfast for us to take away on the day we checked out. Her local knowledge was excellent, enabling us to see/do more than we would have managed if we were... More
