Was very impressed with the presentation, cleanliness and the exceptional hospitality we received from the owners. They went above and beyond what we would have expected. Defiantly would recommend this place they even went to the trouble of organising an in house massage by a very professional masseuse.

Management response:

Our guests were a pleasure to host ,easy to communicate with and very friendly, The studio was left in excellent condition would welcome them back any time.
