I stayed here in November for the 2nd time this year. Tony and Pearl are very hospitable and friendly and have plenty of advice to offer for those wishing to explore the area. The rooms are very well furnished with good ensuite shower rooms. There is a guests lounge downstairs and the breakfasts are first class. Can't fault it!
