We were fortunate enough to land the room on the very top floor of the guest house (I think it's called 'the executive suite', or something similar...) and I must say - it was absolutely beautiful!! The room is modern, beautifully furnished and spacious. The... More

This guest house offers wonderful accommodation in spacious rooms / suites. The views from all rooms are unbeatable and the quality of furnishings is of high standard. The owner - Susan, is very attentive to detail and she provides exceptional and warm, friendly service. The breakfast is huge and offers a wide variety of choices.

That is what a 5 star guest house should look and feel like. The owners will brutalise you with kindness and embarrass you with a 5 star treatment and make you feel like you paid less for more. Thumps up.

However we felt that the guesthouse didn't quite live up to their 5 star rating and feel that its over priced for what you actually get.
