Great welcome by hosts on arrival, value for money the place was quirky as named. The room was good for what we expected and ideal location. Very quiet considering fully booked and area. Nothing was a problem breakfast was freshly made products and hot. Vegetarian in group catered for also Highly recommended Thank you
