It's not often that you arrive at a spot and it looks better than the pictures on the website. The facilities are first class and are only exceeded by the outstanding service of manageresses Martina and Talitha who pay particular attention to one's every need. Probably one of the best guest houses that I've stayed in (and I've stayed in many!). The three course dinner is better than most restaurants.
