Breakfast was great! We had already planned to have dinner elsewhere but will certainly try the restaurant next time.

Great little bed and breakfast! However, nothing much to do within walking distance.


A quick get away

5 on December 25, 2012

We stayed just before Christmas and it was wonderful. The living room had a beautiful tree and was very comfortable to sit and enjoy the wine and chees provide by the staf. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and we had a couples massage which was very relaxing. We will go back!
