Dee and Yves were incredibly welcoming and friendly to a solo traveller. Yves came to pick me up to the airport late in the evening which was nice because I didn't see many taxis around. They were kind enough to give me some delicious roast chicken when I arrived to save me from having a sandwich at the airport.
They have a large and very nicely kept home in what appears to be a quiet residential street. I had a small double room over looking the garden and houses in the distance. It was very quiet although I could hear people moving around above me. The room was well lit there were lots of power sockets. The Wi-Fi and TV worked well. The sink surround was large so there was a lot of space for toiletries. The only thing missing was a shaving mirror for those of us that are too shortsighted to see in the mirror! There was a square jacuzzi bath and a separate shower. Breakfast was a feast with anything you desired cooked to order including porridge (oatmeal), fried eggs, omelettes, scrambled eggs, french toast and fruit salad and so on. Dee even packed me a pot of yoghurt & fruit to take away except I stupidly left it behind! Yves kindly drove me to the hire car location the next morning so I could pick up my hire car. They were full of helpful advice on where I should go to replace my camera that broke during my trip.
It was lovely staying with them & if I hadn't already paid in advance for my stay at the Marriott Courtyard I would have cancelled it in preference to staying with them. I had chosen the Marriott for the convenience of being near the airport. But the friendly welcome & comfort of staying with them far exceeded the impersonal Marriott. So don't make the mistake I did!
