Very comfortable B&B with a charming and interesting owner manager (Reinette) on hand to assist and advise you regarding where to eat dinner (Pioneer) or have afternoon tea (Polka). Accommodation clean and comfortable - and decor bursting with interesting and quirky ornaments and memorabilia. Breakfast was good. Convenient safe parking inside the establishment. Wifi available.
