“A friendly welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2011

The place is very good for the price. The accomodation looks like a fun place and you could tell that its a family run business. The place is very clean. The kitchen has everything you need. The cupboard has labels of whats in it in different languages - mostly people's vandal. The only problem was that the walls were thin that you can hear when other inconsiderate guests would decide to have a domestic in a middle of the night or people giggling at night. Ear plugs will be handy.
I really like Ian - the owner - he is very friendly and even suggested the places to go to. Oh by the way he is giving his puppies away - they are so cute - too bad I cant take then to my flat.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs with you.
