We had a Lovely stay and Bertha was a delight, she mothered us at breakfast. Breakfast was delicious and plenty of it. Michael welcomed us on arrival and was most helpful, even after hours. Very clean and comfortable. We will certainly be back!

We gave the laundry to the guest house and they did it - didn't see any self laundry facilities. They looked after our luggage after we booked out as we had a late flight.
