The guest house has got misleading prices on the Internet. You will get a quote on the Internet and confirm your booking, but when you get to the guesthouse the prices are double what you saw on the Internet.

An excessively overpriced dinner consisting of only the main dish - no starter, no desserts! A scarcity of towels in the double room, but everything else in order. Friendly hosts who made our stay pleasant.
