Firstly the picture depicted on their website bears no resemblance to where we stayed. Very sparsely kitted out for self catering.More backpacking type accommodation, definitely not self catering.

Very basic, no frills accommodation. Room had numerous mosquitos. Noise from the street was a problem. I would equate this B&B to more like backpackers accommodation.

Just the TV is a bit small, but that's personal. The washing of my cloths was a urge surprise, 2 mornings no hot water. Can you please send my invoice.
