The bus number 41 transported us in 10 minutes into the city center. The two elderly owners are very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was brilliant including... More

Our stay at Kelly's was great, so I really felt that I wanted to give them credit, even years later. The prices for the accommodations were very reasonable. The location is not right downtown, but it is... More

Not at Kelly's. The room was comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. All of the facilities provided - tea and coffee making, TV etc. - were... More
