Maurice was excellent at making us welcome. Rooms clean, comfortable and fresh, Breakfast very nice and location great. Parking limited and if stairs are a trial for you then staying here would be a test. We would recommend this B & B to all. Maurice is a good person to guide you where you wish to go.

Our room was quiet and comfortable, breakfasts... More

We received a friendly welcome from the host, Maurice, who then promptly carried our heavy suitcases up to our rooms. We viewed our lovely decorated rooms, as we breathed in the sweet aroma of freshly baked scones enticing us from below. Beautiful view of the water directly across from the house. And a five minute drive will bring you to... More
