Norman & Barbara are the most accommodating hosts. Not only did they ensure my stay is homely, but Norman made sure to give me valuable travel tips to ensure I arrive there safely. The establishment is the neatest I've seen to date, especially the bathrooms, it's spotless! The pool is sparkling (I just didn't have time to enjoy it). As rooms are not in the house you have your privacy. I would recommend Last Post to any person who wants the "home away from home" experience.
