A very friendly, family run hotel. All the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Everyone we met smiled and said hello, even if off duty. We were there during the momentous elections and benefited from the excitement and massive joy of a parliament overturned after 39 years - the staff couldn't contain their elation and we wouldn't have wanted it...

Very small place. Cosy, nice and quiet if that is what you are looking for (we were). Rooms are nice, but worn and don`t expect repairs to be done during your stay. Breakfast very simple, but you can have any kind of fresh made eggs every day although food was not always warm when served. Lunch and dinner were simple...
