Beautiful room with lots of amenities (coffee, tea, small fridge, bathrobes, slippers, iron and board, shoe shine kit, sewing kit, hairdryer), very nice and modern bathroom, everything absolutely spotless. Superb breakfast with lots of choices. Very friendly hosts. Central but quiet area near railway station and seaside.

The owners were a friendly, welcoming couple, who were happy to provide information on the area. The breakfast was fresh and delicious, and the BnB had such a comfy vibe with the honesty bar, and the chess board in the lounge room.
