Fantastic hospitality and the little touches that make a trip lovely. Breakfast was exceptional; Angus looked after me like an old friend. Great location for a morning sea walk and stunning architecture. Smooth check in after hours and helpful airport shuttle. Great value for money too!!

Everything about the guest house was good- decor, hosts, breakfast, rooms... Being right near the promenade along the beach was great. One of the rooms faced the front porch and there was not much privacy but ours was in the back and relatively quiet. The owners and staff were really really nice and very helpful.

I felt very welcomed and comfortable at the Villa Rosa. I was so impressed with the environment and atmosphere that Greg and Steve have create. This is a special place, not just because the rooms are beautiful, clean and food delicious. This is about the place and space they have created.

Our room was very big but cozy. The manager and owners came to greet us. One of the owners is a cook. He makes all the material for breakfast by himself. Breakfast was plenty and delicious. They are located 4 blocks from the beach and 5 from the hop on-hop off stop. You have plenty parking on the street.

Thank you for the positive review. Our breakfasts are a great way to start the day in our beautiful city. Steven starts the day with a choice of an Italian platter with imported meats or a hot breakfast that ranges from Eggs Benedict to Potato Rosti. There is always a delight each day!

From the moment we were welcomed by the owners to the minute we left we had a great experience. The friendliness and service of the owners and staff really made us feel at home. The rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast was a lifesaver in the morning. Thanks to all and we will be back!

Would highly recommend this lovely guest house in a good location close to local amenities, restaurants and the sea front. Our hosts Steven & Greg and their brilliant team went out of their way to make us welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfasts are to die for, nearly everything is home made from Jams, yogurt,...

Great guest house. Just what one needs on a business trip. Not like a normal hotel, as the owners and staff provide that personal touch and make you feel at home. Great location and renovations or upgrade are great. Not to mention the fantastic breakfasts
