Supervision should be improved. We pointed out some lightbulbs not working, well they were still not changed by the time we left. Generally we had a very pleasant stay and can also recommend the breakfast.

Great place to stay very quiet, could be a little warm if temps get hot, fan , no AC. Otherwise great to sit out in outdoor space. On closed street so very quiet, no traffic, turning around tight because of alll the parked cars. Bed was huge and very comfortable.
