Positive Reviews

Relaxed and friendly

Almost without exception, guests appreciated the hosts’ friendly welcome. This was followed up with lots of tips and helpful advice on the best value places to visit and how to get there. A shuttle was available for a number of locations, as well as to the airport. This B&B was very much a family business and this reflected in the home from home atmosphere enjoyed by guests.

Informal dining was an option

Breakfast was good although it wasn’t to the taste of all guests. Later on, if guests didn't want to drive to a restaurant, there was always the option of sitting down and dining with the owners, if pre-arranged.

Super clean and comfortable

Everything was very clean and guests remarked particularly on the freshness of the bed linen, the fluffiness of the towels and the comfort of the beds.

Negative Reviews

Running hot and cold

Guests couldn’t fail to note the detailed instructions as to what to do to access hot water. This was felt to be a clue that there was a potential problem. Indeed, this proved to be the case with some guests bemoaning the fact that their shower was icy cold.

Reported missing

In this setting and climate, guests unanimously felt that a refrigerator would have been a great added room feature. Other things that were considered missing included a reading lamp, a few complimentary toiletries and coffee.

Animal farm

The owners obviously loved their pets and it was good to see visiting kids playing with them. Guests, however, noted some hygiene problems. There was worrying dog poop lying around outside.
