The breakfast offers things like French toast with brie and eggs benedict, far above what you usually get at a B and B. The staff were very nice,...

We arrived quite late in the afternoon and left early morning (we attended a wedding) but couldn't fault this place at all. The rooms were generous, clean and beautiful.

We stayed one night in this spotless B&B located conveniently near the centre and the sports grounds. The staff were welcoming and friendly. We were amazed and disgusted by two guests smoking cigarettes at the table beside us on the veranda where we ate breakfast. They even had an ashtray which the staff must have provided! It's hard to believe...
