    Not all items in the room where functional upon arrival. Once reception was notified they set out to rectify. Guest house has amazing views with friendly staff. Breakfast was basic & filling. Would recommend to others.

    Stayed 3 nights at this awesome guest house. We were in Room 15 which is separate from the main guesthouse but has the most wonderful patio area. Room was very comfortable and the service from staff great. Keep it up!
