Very clean, freshly renovated, super friendly staff (thank you for the pick up and drop off!), and a fantastic park 200 metres away. We thought it would be loud because there are some big roads nearby, but it wasn‘t.

This was a lovely quiet place to stay, close to the airport for an early flight the next day. The room was beautifully presented, and the gardens were lovely and neat. The proprietor was very friendly and welcoming.

We loved our home for three days. It was very well appointed & had plenty of room for all of us as a family, to move around. The shower was a tad small, but other than that, all other amenities were well used.

Great Value
Other than a bed that was typically a lot less comfortable than my own this was a very pleasant stay. The hosts were really friendly, the room was clean and extremely quiet, the value for money excellent and I'd certainly return. It's 4 yes's from me.
