The Pros first:
A spacious room with a large bed.
Nice bathroom.
There is a small kitchen as well, we didn't use it.
Nice yard.
Breakfast was good and sufficient.
The problems:
The access to that room is by a very narrow and uncomfortable spiral staircase, making it almost impossible to bring luggage upon arrival and to take it out upon departure. The spiral staircase is also located too low, so when you go downstairs, at the end, you can hit your head.
The large bed is actually made of two beds standing side by side. Both mattresses are worn and have both a large pit in the middle. Very uncomfortable.
Upon arrival, I had to kill 6 large flying insects in the room. The insects were Crane Flies -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Crane_fly_halteres.jpg
A B&B in a region with so many insects should have mesh window and door, we didn't come to a Safari vacation.
It took forever to the hot water to arrive to the shower. I don't know where...
