Wonderful, great view, delicious breakfast, luxury rooms, very friendly host, commendable.
Julia Pulow Jul 2010
When sleeping in room nr one, the upstairs floor where the breakfast is made, is a bit noisy early in the morning. This is when they drop something or even put something down on the table with speed! Otherwise I do rate this place as five star!

The surroundings, service and friendly hands-on approach was outstanding and will certainly have us advertise the Guest house to family and friends. They are simply the best example of how that style of accomodation should be done.
