This guesthouse ha a very freindly and helpful proprietor and the roos are clean, tidy and well appointed. The only thing I'd have liked is a desk which I think is a must given the number of people who travel for business or who want to go online to check email..

The room was small. The mattress was soft and the room was cold. Wasn't super impressed. The pictures online looked much better but I think it was because we were in the smallest room on the property.
