Anne and Bruce were fabulous hosts. The location was ideal, quite but very close to the city for restuarants and shops for tourists. Ambiance and decor was fantastic, furnishing was very tasteful, the room very comfortable with all the amenities needed on hand. Facilities of laundry done on the premises was definitely a bonus
