This felt like home away from home. Friendly and very helpful owners, great breakfast food, clean and comfortable room, breakfast on the verandah, well-located close to town. I can't stress enough how helpful owners Ann and Kris were with connections, even to medical services, suggestions for dining, directions to our daily destinations. Lovely people.

Situated in a residential quiet area very near to the city centre we enjoyed the spectacular views from our room, during breakfast (sumptious, count extra time) and a relaxing stay at the swimming pool.
