Won't recommend. Guest house manager would not allow us back in on Sunday afternoon after arrangement was made for our exhibition material to be stored overnight until courier service could collect on Monday morning. She simply refused to open gate or take calls from us.

The place is in a quite suburb, easy to find. It is a beautiful place with beautiful rooms. Well maintained. Welcomed by the owner who have a good sense of humor. Restaurant very beautiful although it does not have much breakfast options.
