This was our 4th stay in the Minerva and, as before, had an excellent time with a very clean, well equipped bedroom and superb (and large) breakfasts. Dave & Rachel are excellent hosts and the advice they give re local amenities and restaurants can't be faulted. Looking forward to returning when they have their Steakhouse open.
