It's a beautiful peaceful retreat - along side the Lake Victoria, on a quiet tree lined street that houses some gracious older homes and Church. What really impressed me was the terrace and garden - spectacular!
This home gives one the feeling of serentiy, tranquility of being out in the country, yet it's close and convenient to everything. The owners George and Christina go all out to make you feel very welcome in this elegant and majestic home. Very well decorated, with attention to detail we were well taken care of. We stayed in Room #1, which I found very roomy, elegant and cozy and had a lovely large window. Each room had their own unique style. High ceilings, beautiful wood trim, original windows. A lot of thought went into the decor.
Right across from our room on the second floor was a small kitchen complete with all the appliances, dishes, utensils of home including a table and chairs. This was wonderful for the night when we dined in - and brought back some delicious food from one of the cafes in town. The fridge was stocked with bottled water for all the guests and it was large enough for us to store our own food, and so much more.
The downstairs parlor was a relaxing spot to stretch out and unwind and read after our day of touring the town and shopping, giving us some time to take everything in before dinner and the theater. Breakfast beckoned, from the melt in your mouth fresh out of the oven croissants, to the yoghurt, yummy bowl of fresh fruit, muesli, to the specially prepared quiche and orange juice. Help yourself to coffee and tea - they have quite a variety of tea. The location is close to everything in town, so you can walk to whereever you need to go. What a lovely spot - a great find. Would definately go back again.
Do know; there is no tv, so plan accordingly, read, sit on the terrace and enjoy, have games, things to do with family and friends. There is so much to do in town from restaurants, shops, theater, as well as things to do at the B and B, you don't need tv. You can always bring and use your computer - if you feel you really must. Sometimes it's just nice to get away from it all.
