I loved the hands on, friendly owners who saw to our every need. I loved the super cleanliness of everything and the great breakfasts. Every convenience is catered for and easily available. I shall certainly book there again when I next pass that way. Thank you so much Herbert and Terence.

Both Herbert and Terence were very welcoming and made us feel at home. They were a mine of information about the area which is really helpful for visitors. We had breakfasts there which were generous and in particular, excellent scrambled eggs! The coffee could have been stronger, but it was freshly brewed and hot. The one evening meal we had there was also good. The guesthouse is well placed for exploring the small town.
