We had an incredible stay here! The owner's were extremely friendly, gave us great recommendations of places to see in town, and treated us with the upmost hospitality. The hotel itself is incredibly beautiful, quiet and charming. Our stay could not have been better and we are so grateful to have found this gem. We will absolutely return in the future and could not recommend it enough!

10/10 Exceptional

The best stay I’ve had in a long time including travel in Europe and United States. I arrived nearly at midnight with my young son after 24hrs of air travel. The owner waited for us, took us to our room and made sure we had everything we needed. In the morning she made homemade breakfast for us at 11am when we finally woke up. I cannot day enough about this place. Exceptional in every way and exceedingly preferred to the large, impersonal chain hotels.

8/10 Very good

Very friendly and attentive hosts!
Our stay here was very good! It is only 10min walk from the train station which suited us as we arrived by train in the small hours of the morning. Our host was ready to receive us and check us in, making sure we had everything we needed! Both hosts were very friendly and attentive and gave excellent suggestions for sightseeing and eating out. Only small complaint was that it was a little expensive, particularly for breakfast when compared to other establishments in the area. It was however, in my opinion well worth the visit as it was a very nice place overall, especially the hosts!
