The personal is very friendly. The rooms are ok, but could be better. There are two pillows you can choose from, but both are same size. I slept on my travel pillow since the ones from the hotel were too thick. The breakfast is basic. They however do not have enough capacity when the whole hotel comes for breakfast at...

Near the water, and away from the centre and all the touristy places, it is a lovely little place. Rooms are modest but clean and comfortable, staff is nice, breakfast has home-made jams and breads and cakes. It is about a 15 minute walk from the centre.

Beautiful rooms. Excellent service. Well priced. Great food and staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about local places to visit. The place sits far away from town to be quiet, but close enough to get there walking. Views are fantastic! Loved the place and would go back.

Room is tiny and cluttered with useless cute furnishings. Shower basin fills with water and overflows on the floor in 2 different rooms. Bathroom had such a strong moldy odor that we had to keep the window open all night to breathe. Sheets were too small for the matress which left you sleeping directly on a stained mattress.
