From the warm welcome, great room, excellent breakfast to the reasonably priced bar we couldn't fault anything.

We only stayed one night for New Years Eve but would certainly love to stay longer. Greeted by the hosts with fresh coffee and home made chocolate cake. Lots of helpful info about the local area. Breakfast was stunning. Penthouse suite was stunning, roomy, comfortable and had all you needed.
