Good location and limited on site parking, but street parking was good. Staff were exceptional, a pity they have sold out and are moving on. Breakfast is basic cereal, toast and coffee but there is kitchen availability with fridge and dish washer if you wish to use it. WiFi was poor in front room but great in the dinning area towards the rear of the house. Overall basic but well run, we would stay with the hosts again.

The hostess was super, super friendly. The room is great. A bit small but not a huge problem. We only stayed one night. She provides a cold breakfast (cereal or toast with jam, coffee, and juice). The only thing we were unhappy with was the shower situation. It is a shared shower. There is a toilet and sink in the room. We couldn't find this information disclosed anywhere on the postings. We felt that information should be posted, as it is important to know. With that said, the price is bargain.
