There's something rather special about being greeted by name on arrival - on your first visit. Lots of little touches like ensuing the outside lights and heating were on for your return in the evening were much appreciated. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

The room was not at all modern but it was warm and spotlessly clean. The host was fantastic and made us feel so welcome, giving directions to the local market and general area. The real surprise was when she text to say we had left our face wash behind. I've left much more expensive things in hotels and never seen... More

I think the current owners may have only been here about three years and they are progressively doing up the rooms. We were in unit 3 this time and I have to say when I stepped in what... More
