                  The service and breakfast was excellent. The pool was nice and clean and the guesthouse is close to the shops.But 3 out of the 4 rooms that we booked had worn-out mattresses that slept very uncomfortable and gave us terrible backaches.

                  we stayed for one night, the bathroom is in need of a makeover.  There is green fungi in the taps in the bath!    The shower curtain was dirty.   The room was downstairs so  we listened to our neighbours walking around!   Friendly staff .
