This guest house is just what you need. Clean, quiet, and the people running it are very nice friendly and service is good. Nothing more nothing less. It is just a nice place to sleep. We were very happy with the value and the room. Recommended

This is a lovely neighbourhood, close to Beacon Hill Park, Government House, Cook Street Village and more. (very walkable) I stayed in a furnished one-bedroom suite, and it was lovely - bright,...
