Unfortunately we didn't have a great experience here. Not all of it was the fault of the owner to be fair. The lady of the house had dashed to England for a family emergency, and our host seemed a trifle harassed! We were given a pleasant enough room on the ground floor although the decor was perhaps slightly eccentric, there were tea and coffee facilities so that was fine.Unfortunately in the morning we found that the hot water comes out of the cold tap, then both hot and cold stopped altogether so no shave or showers, seems somebody had cut through the main supply. Breakfast was served upstairs and was very good with lovely views to the sea. However the room is full of unrelated memorabilia and is frankly just a mess. We were kindly offered a 100 SAR reduction because of the water problems which helped a bit. Hopefully we were just unlucky......
