Clean, comfortable, friendly with some extra touches. A most enjoyable stay with everything you could want or need. They went out of their way to make sure everything was enjoyable for our stay. Great food, good local advice, nice and quiet even though it’s on the main street, wouldn’t hesitate to return.
