Very nice lodge style guest house. The room was fresh and got good size. Nice and well assorted breakfast. The cafe has a limited dinner menu which could have been better. Would highly recommend the guest house for other travelers.

We ordered coffee and cake. It was ok, but not really recommendable. They have cheesecake and layer cakes.
