Sign in well handled; room comfortable, and good size;bed and sleeping experience excellent. Don't expect any extras though - everything including internet access is extra, and the extras are quite expensive.

We thank ronniev642 for the review and comments about the stay. As we are in off-season we do offer compatible rates, which do not include extras. The prices are as in other guesthouses, which is comparative but we definitely will have a look at it. Kind regards, Moreblessing

guesthouse is very nicely furnitured; friendly staff; nice atmosphere/ambiente; unfortunately the reception is not 24hs occupied; there is a number you can call or ring a bell, but when you reach someone (not always), it will take a while for him to get there; WLAN only at the reception and didn't always work

Dear Sarah S, Your review is appreciated and we will take a look into the WiFi difficulties. As we experience “Power Load shedding’s” we need to reset the routers, maybe that was the problem for the connectivity.
