          Overall very good, except for the air conditioning (for heating) in the room that did not function properly. It was very cold! The place itself was very charming and the manager very friendly and helpful.

          The room was too cold. Air conditioner inadequate. No shower is also a negative in this day and age. Awkward access from car to room and no tea making facilities in the room. No breakfast was offered and overall we thought the service was poor.

          Very pleasant accommodation with welcoming and helpful host (Bianca). Comfortable room (we had the cottage), Wifi that works and lovely breakfast for reasonable extra charge. Highly recommended for the overnight stop

          We were very well received and seen to immediately. The room was lovely, clean and very comfortable. We really felt at home and had a good nights rest. Thank you very much for a lovely stay and will certainly stop over at The Light House...More

          Good day, each unit has a designated area where your vehicle can be securely parked behind a locked gate.
