Lovely welcoming staff. We had the penthouse suite. Right at the top of the building. Stunning views. Amazing jacuzzi and what a shower. Very comfy bed. Breakfast great although slightly tight for space. Easy walk into town. Would definitely recommend.

The breakfasts are the perfect thing to set you up for a day of exploring this stunning area and we'll certainly be back... if this is your first visit... More

Lovely guest house and very friendly. A homely welcome given. We were upgraded to a suite because it was one of our party's birthday. Had a vegetarian breakfast on offer which was super. Perfectly situated in centre of town.
