I took a chance booking into this establishment for tow nights. What concerned me immediately was that the driveway is open to the road, with a low front wall, and no security.

We had a pleasant stay at Abelia. The room was spacious and warm. Beds were comfortable. The owner couple were very sweet and hospitable. They have a lovely collection of antique furniture. Just a small hitch! We felt a bit cold in the room as heating was not adequate. An extra blanket for each bed would have been sufficient and comfortable. Never the less everything else was perfect! Would love to stay there again!
