We were the only guests in this clean house. At first it seemed a bit creepy because the main doors were unlocked, but really, who would be out in this isolated gorgeous place? The two neighboring guesthouse hostesses were so nice and accommodated us with friendliness and a lovely breakfast. We walked over to their farm. In addition to the...

We stayed here one night and were glad when we departed. The owner of the place is very nice and the breakfast is good but that's it regarding the positive points. The hotel is very old and there hasn'tbeen a lot of renovation going on in the last 20 years - examples: - The toilet in our room was broken...

This 1947 former schoolhouse is comfortable and cozy. We were surprised to have access to a pool and hot tub a short walking distance away. We would have liked room darkening shades since the drapes do not block out as much light. Luckily there were only four rooms occupied on the top floor (out of ten) or it would have...

Contrary to other opinions, we got a great price, the hotel runners were very kind and helpful, the scenery was pastoral and lovely, the heated swimming pool was well-kept and relaxing. It's in a somewhat residential section, though still quiet by American standards.

Got there very late with no dinner so the owner promptly asked whether I would like fish or eggs and proceeded to cook me a delicious meal of large pieces of fish and potatoes. He was a very very nice person. There needs to be a sign on the front of the building as even with my GPS getting me...

We were the only guests. We arrived late (22.30 hrs), nobody there, one telephone call and 3 minutes later the manager arrived. Clean toilets, nice showers, a fabulous natural hotwater swimming pool. We had a great time.

If you are desperate for a bed and arrive late in the dark, this former school house might be an option... if not, try to avoid the place. Has got the charm of a detention center. Owners don't really try to make up for this lack of atmosphere. You need quite a grim sense of humor to enjoy this place.
