Rooms were extremely clean and the welcome was fantastic. Owners very helpful and welcoming. It is walking distance to a bar and dining area. and although close to the road, there was minimal noise from the traffic.

I've stayed a few times on work business, and think this is a great little spot. Kelvin is an awesome friendly host. The rooms are nicely decorated, the beds super-comfortable. Fast free wifi is another nice little touch. Highly recommended.
