Such a lovely guesthouse, right on the river and a short walk to the centre of town. Absolutely loved the deck by the river where there are lots of tables and chairs and a hot tub. We sat out with a bottle of wine that we bought and had the most relaxing time.
The room was super clean and comfortable. We had one of their standard rooms upstairs. We had a big terrace that was shared with one other room facing the lovely street (very quiet and lovely to look out on). I did catch a peek at the more expensive river view room and it looked amazing, with a sitting area in the room as well as a fantastic view. I'd get that room if we went back again.
This was the best breakfast from a guesthouse or hotel that we had the whole trip. They leave out coffee and tea making facilities all day and leave out afternoon treats at 3pm I think it was - delicious cookies on the day we were there.
They really have thought of everything. There's free wifi, a computer downstairs and dvds you can watch, and boardgames.
They had their own parking bay right outside.
I must say that Kathie the innkeeper was so helpful and friendly. She was a real pleasure to meet.
The town itself is very sweet and has plenty of cute shops and restaurants and a few bars. I would definitely recommend travelling out to the dunes if you have a car. The beach there was beautiful.
