We spent one night whilst attending a bridge competition. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable and the views of the see are lovely. Hosts are extremely warm, friendly and helpful. Had a little trouble booking initially as we phoned while the owners were out, but the booking was quickly confirmed when the owner called us back.

On my recent experience with the owner I found their scruples to be lacking when it came to pricing. It appeared that the owner assumed I would believe that they... More

It seems to me there is confusion as to how Agoda works. This guest saw a discount price on Agoda which he copied to me (not booking.com). My prices are the same on all websites on which I advertise. However Agoda chooses to sell rooms at below cost to their "genius" customers, this is an Agoda discount and not a... More
