We were warmly welcomed to this old Bordello. Our room was out in the back lane, but no less interesting for that. You would have to see the size of the shower to believe it! Both dinner and breakfast were delicious and prepared with fresh produce.

We stayed here on the recent long weekend and wanted a romantic, relaxing time. Well we sure got that! This place is fantastic! We stayed in room 1 and it was beautiful. The huge balcony looked over the town, the spa was luxurious and it didn't take long to fill up. The fireplace was perfect, the bed was comfortable and... More

Very romantic setting in the room however we were greeted with a lacklustre greeting. Shown halfway to our room only to be told by the owner that she couldn't climb the stairs because of her chronic asthma. My husband had booked the room for my birthday getaway spa and open fireplace. Not enough hot water to fill the spa and... More

Hi Julie, We hope you had a happy birthday. We are very sorry that the hot water service wasn't working to its full capacity. I contacted the guests that stayed in that suite for the previous 3 nights and they said it was working fine, and had even had a spa on the same morning of your stay. Unfortunately, one... More

I thought I had not made a great choice when I booked this hotel but I was completely mistaken. Martin welcomed us and made us feel completely at home. The room was excellent. Great value for money, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was a delight. I wanted a bottle of wine for us to drink and he recommended a... More

This hotel is located above a bar in the centre of the town. Martin made us very welcome and rather than going out to eat in the evening we decided to stay and eat in the bar. We were not dissapointed, the food was fantastic. The hotel is old and has a lot of original features. Our room was very... More

Thank you for your review. I am not going to respond to each complaint you have written about, just those that will show readers that this is a totally biased review.

Room was nice and big, the bed was very comfortable and we had an excellent nights sleep. The spa had a wet and dirty face washer left in it from the previous guests or from cleaning it, we didnt bother raising it with the owner as we didn't want to start off on an awkward note. The water presure is... More
