Firstly: the views. Oh the views. There is a rooftop area here with hammocks and reclining chairs where you can gaze out at the mountains and contemplate life. It is wonderful.
Secondly: the breakfast. They make damn fine French toast and nice tea in proper teapots.
Thirdly: the rooms. They're very rustic, with a lot of light fixtures not working, the furniture quite old, and no insect screens on windows. The pillows were a bit old and the bed was far from luxurious. All that said, we slept like babies and felt great the next day.
We liked how close this was to town - an easy walk down a steep hill (which is a bit dark at night, so take a torch).
We recommend this place for the lovely service, cosy atmosphere, and out-of-this-world views.
