It was great! Close walking distance into the city. Highly recommend this place to stay! Unfortunately we only stayed one night but will definitely...

Good quality toiletries were...

We will return again, as have done in the past, for very clean, spacious, pleasant accomodation. Not super duper flashy but very close to town, and the winner for us in regard to friendly helpful staff.
