This is a little way out of town but is quiet and close to the thermal stuff. Good value even during a busy conference week. The bed is soft which was not good for us. Very helpful staff and worth a look.

Love the comfy bed. Ample space to put toiletries and hang clothes in the bathroom. Bathroom is new and clean. Warm and friendly hosts. They took time to give advice on the places of interest. The internet is really fast. Would love to visit again. ;)

Not to mention Sue, the host, had been a wonderful host, very polite, knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to. Heated blankets for colder nights come as a bonus!

Arrived, and was greeted warmly, checked in without an issue, and was shown to my room. THe lovely lady who greeted me, made sure the heater was turned on (it was superly cold the day I arrived), I knew where extra blankets etc were, and I had everything I needed. Great Stay, Great Price, Lovely People! I will be back!
