This is my new favorite accommodation. It's absolutely beautiful, lovingly restored, and close to everything. The breakfast is fantastic, and the host is kind and accommodating. The rooms are stunning, and the beds are very comfortable. I highly recommend it, especially for a romantic getaway!

Good location, close to museum, art gallery and gardens, rooms downstairs were dark but nicely furnished and large, en-suite small and a bit cramped as an add-on in corner of the room. Large continental breakfast selection.
