          The property is dark, smells musty and needs updating. Didn't find anything quirky about the dust and the stained bathroom with previous guests' hair in drainage. Cluttered and a bit grim. Question the hygiene in the kitchen. Not a good experience for us.

          Old, dirty (the bath was full of death insects!)... The name sounds romantic and avocative but the reality stinks! (literally: It smells mildew and moisture.). The hosttest is nice but I won't recommend the place to anybody... Luckily, it was just one night.
