Only two nights B&B, and wish we could have stayed longer. Excellent place to stay, very clean, comfortable rooms, superb breakfast and staff very friendly and helpful. Bit of a problem with car parking but none the less will certainly recommend and will be back.

Stayed 3 nights/4 days, such a homey guesthouse, excellent location, 7 min walk from the Lake bay and 15 min from the train station. The room was quite comfortable and clean. And the greatest added value goes to the hosts couple, they are so nice, friendly and so helpful ! A warm atmosphere makes u feel at home. Highly recommended...
