This is our home, we have come for many years, many times we call too late to get reservations. Everything is great, the best is all the interesting people we meet!

My wife and I have stayed her a couple of times. We love it. The hosts are fantastic and the breakfasts are outstanding. We plan on returning here often.

Excellent B&B, ticks all the right boxes as to why we use B&B's and not hotels; friendly and well informed proprietors and excellent breakfasts. Good 'communal' breakfast table where one gets the opportunity to chat with other guests, share experiences and get information on what to do and see. Very well situated close to Balboa Park.
