Babette Bed and Breakfast
Great place to stay
Really nice place. So clean and well maintained. Unfortunately we stayed only one night. Would have loved to stay longer. The owners are very welcoming and really happy to help. Breakfast is also great

Babette Bed and Breakfast
Great breakfast, quiet surroundings, friendly staff and hosts. However, it would be nice to have better blankets, room heater, carpeted floor and more lighting.

Very Good8,0
Very good B and B
Our room in the garden was very attractive and well equipped with coffee making facilities, refrigerator with well-priced drinks, and comfortable bed. The gardens are beautifully laid out and have a large pool. There is ample parking. The owners are charming and helpful. Breakfast was very good. The accomodation is near several good restaurants and the museum. Overall this was a very good B and B - the only minor drawback was a lack of curtains or blinds on two of the higher windows which meant it was very bright in the morning and, as we are light sleepers, we were wakened earlier than was ideal.
