Welcoming and friendly hosts and easy to find. We had the smallest of the three rooms with a very small bathroom. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and beautifully laundered bed linen and towels. Bath robes provided. There was absolutely nowhere to store anything. One small table at the bedside, nothing on the other. A chair in one corner and a coat...

The owners Wayne and Lizette were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was really good and the rooms were lovely and clean. The B&B is within walking distance to all the amenities and we had a wonderfull time there. The only problem was we didn't stay longer !!! Maybe next time.

It was the first time in a b&b,so we were a bit apprehensive about staying in someone's house.The house itself was spectacular in it's cleanliness,decor,and equipment,but the best part was the hosts Lizette and Wayne,who made us feel very welcome,but discreetly left us to our own devises.Absolute gem of a find!
