The guesthouse was clean, had a pool with water (!), a kitchen with enough storage, freindly and helpful staff. The room we had booked via booking.com was small, smaller and cheaper then the other rooms they offer, but good for a night. The bathroom was big the bed not the best.

Because of occupancy we stayed in the self-catering apartment, which was a bit more expensive than the rooms, but it also offered us a big deal more privacy. The rooms look nice with large window-slide-doors, but that was at the same time the only way in/out+daylight- & fresh-air source. Must feel a bit like living in a aquarium. So I...

I stayed here for a few days at the end of my 2 week self-drive around the country. After going for so long, it was a perfect place to chill poolside in the peace and quiet. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast amazing, and the staff is beyond accommodating. They were so awesome with every request I had, I cant...

A rather late review I'm afraid. I stayed here December 2015, but the menu doesn't let me pick a date that far back! This was a great little budget place. Safe, comfortable, clean and reasonably priced. I actually stayed twice because I felt so comfortable there. Great breakfast and kitchen too.

I visited rivendell alone in january 2017 for two days. The hostel was very nice and about 10mins walk from the city center. The only thing i found was that it was very quiet, most guests kept to themselves so i missed the 'hostel feeling' a little bit. Otherwise lovely.

I stayed at this guesthouse for one night last week. I was in the single room with shared bathroom. The location of the guesthouse is very convenient-- I was able to walk to the city center easily. It is very charming, with a fully equipped kitchen and lots of communal areas. The staff was pleasant and helpful, and the property...

The staff greeted with a smile, the place was a cozy small area with several buildings and a pool. There seemed to be everything needed for a shorter stay - kitchen, wifi, several places to hang out in and rooms were also good. The location is sligthly off the city center (compared to some other venues in similar price level)...

The rooms are nice and clean. Personel is very friendly and helpfull. Only negative point is that a construction site is right next to the guesthouse. Although to noise is not too much and only during the day.
