These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
Very nice guesthouse. Big airy room, great breakfast. I just missed a lobby or a place to hang around and have a beer.
This guesthouse was superb. A lovely room, good location, and very helpful proprietor. We would definitely stay there again
I'm not quite sure it was the same"luxury" atandard as advertised in their literature. It was acceptable, but certainly not luxurious.
Well run, helpful (booked us dinner at The Wreck) and nicely appointed. As a minor personal observation don`t like having fridges in a bedroom as the noise they make outweighs their utility.
We had a very nice room, good size, comfortable. Nice breakfast. Convenient location near water and shopping. Proprietor was delightful. They arranged a good dessert tour with Batis Birding that was outstanding. Another fantastic stop in our travels.
