    Response from Eddie B, Owner at Villa Lugano GuesthouseResponded 15 August 2017

    Wow. Very sad receiving this review which is so much the opposite of other reviews, especially as no issues were discussed with the owners or staff. Some of the "not so positive reviews" can be seen as positive criticism. Unfortunately not this one. Real sad.

    Reviewed 19 July 2017

    One is always warmly welcomed upon arrival, the hospitality stands out the most and one very quickly feels at home. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are friendly and accommodating. James makes a great breakfast and one is never disappointed with their stay here.
