Pleasant homely atmosphere.

Guests said that they felt like they were staying with their friends or relatives due to the laid-back atmosphere and high level of hospitality.

Memorable breakfasts.

Negative Reviews

Parking issues.

There are only a limited amount of parking places on the property and some guests mentioned that due to the tight spaces they experienced difficulties when trying to park their vehicles.

Tiring climb to the rooms.

There is no lift on the premises and guests whose rooms were located on the third floor said that they found the daily climb up the narrow stairs to their accommodation rather tiring.

Internet connection problems.

Guests who wanted to connect to the Internet in their rooms said that the Wi-Fi signal was quite weak which prompted them to take their devices to the lounge where the signal was said to be better.
