Room 2 was small, but bed v comfy and slept well. Bathroom small and narrow but did what it needed to. Shower had lots of...

Absolutely no place to put 2 average size suitcases. Not even under the bed. Constantly stepping over and squeezing by them. Small, awkward corner...

“Would not stay here again and would not recommend it. This was the only dud of the 14 Guest Houses we stayed in during our trip.”

“our first B & B experience. admittedly we were looking for a deal. we had a nice room with a view the bay. the shared toilet area it was clean and bottles of shampoo etc were provided. the funishings were very very dated. the communal room couch was broken which i found out when i sat down and the cushion kept sinking and sinking. the owners were friendly but definately not authentic and i got the impression they really didn't want to be in the B & B business. ie when they were around they had rooms to let but if they left or didn't want to be bothered the full sign would go up. this has nothing to do with a 'review' but speaks to an attitude. basically, the place has bad mojo around. if you don't understand that comment then the place could be right for you.”
