We found David and Barbie to be friendly interesting hosts. The rooms are beautifully furnished and have port if you desire. Really nice size bathroom. We stayed in Tui. Just be mindful of the sloped ceiling especially if you get up through the night. Breakfast was beautifully set out in the dining area which we shared with a lovely young... More

We were warmly welcomed and happily supplied with useful information on where to eat dinner locally ( we had an ale at the local brewery and a great gourmet pizza next door) and about our road trip the next day. Breakfast was sensational. We stayed in the Tui room which was very... More

I stayed here for my last night before flying home. The room I had was fantastic. Very nicely decorated and wonderfully comfortable. The breakfast was fab and the location is a 15-20 minute walk from a good selection of restaurants and shops. I didn't get to use it to its full potential as this was just a stop off for... More

This is a gorgeous place to stay. The hosts, David and Barbie, are friendly, welcoming and very helpful. They welcome you like long-lost friends. The room I had was upstairs, with it's own bathroom.
