Excellent accommodation, location is perfect and the staff were very helpful, breakfast was superb and I would imagine in the summer it would be very pleasant sitting outside for breakfast.
Very nice guesthouse, neat and clean with a lot of charm. Perfectly situated in the old town. Friendly staff.
