We stayed five days and most days it rained which the locals loved as it ended a major drought. Due to the rain we spent more time in house than we had intended.

We stayed only one night but really enjoyed the place. Traditional rooms but well maintained. Excellent kitchen for dinner and breakfast, nice dining room, great service staff. Nice bar " English style " for cocktails and drinks. Nice garden around with many birds.

A bit old school set up. Service great. Food excellent. Prices charged reasonable. If you are looking for somewhere else to eat this is it. Well worth the visit.
