5/5 Excellent

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The fact that breakfast was included for the price I thought was value for money. The owner was very welcoming. It felt more like a home from home. Beds and pillows were very comfortable.

Close to town and convenient to 'attractions'. Car parking on the street, no dramas though. Kitchen and bathrooms congested at peak times - to be expected.
