I do not believe in running a place down as we all need to make a living but this guest house was definitely not... More

I was dissapointed when I walked into the room and noticed that the white bedding had orange stains on, did not make a good impression on me. The rain cancelled our boat trip and instead of rescheduling we received a picnic basket in the place of the boat trip which did not measure up. Needless to say I will not... More

It might not look like much from the outside, but it is very homely and neat on the inside. It caters for your comfort. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the bathrooms boast with a shower and a bath!

Friendly service nice clean rooms. Well situated. Decent and delicious breakfast. I would suggest that you have rooms with microwaves in, or on request to have a microwave braught to a room. For people that eat later in the evening.
