Small room, no real guest lounge as such and owner derided our planned activities which, when we did them, proved stunning.

I enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and warm enough in the cool weather. All the furnishings and fittings are of a high standard and the mattress is not too soft nor too firm. There are toiletries in the bathroom, a hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities with real milk. And the towels are nice and thick. I will definitely recommend this guest house to my colleagues.
