We stayed a night in August, when we came into town to see a concert. We initially stayed because the price for two of us was about half(!) what it was at the concert location. We thought we'd get a cheap hotel to go with the cheap (for this location and time of year) price - nothing could have been further from the truth! We were met by a super friendly host, the room was large, clean, finished to a high standard, and quiet, and the breakfast the next day was super. He even let us park our truck in the back, so our dog (no dogs in the rooms) could sleep there more peaceably. He's suited for cyclists, and we saw a large happy group of bikers leaving in the morning, too. So good for all. We'll definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the street - but the street is really quiet, so no problems.

We only stayed one night however we found the room to be comfortable and clean. The host was very nice and recommended a place for dinner. He also told us about a performance by the junior pipe band in town which we were glad we didn't miss. It is an easy walk into the main part of town.

Well, this is a classic example of how GOOD PICTURES CAN MAKE A PLACE BETTER THAN REALITY…

As a matter of fact, this guest house is not ugly, but certainly it’s not as charming as it looks on the website, and especially the view from it…

It’s location it’s central, yet quiet, at the top of the hill from the harbor, restaurants and shops (300 m).
The view from there however isn’t that nice, and our room OVERLOOKED THE PARKING, AND THE ANNOYING ORANGE LIGHTS in front of the school (even during the night).

Both room and shower room were just ok, but even though the shower worked well, it’s draining didn’t; and the heating, kind of hot when we arrived, in the morning was completely off.

The “WELCOME” here was MINIMUM REQUIRED, COLD AND IMPERSONAL, as the reception room style… so far from being cozy.

And last the BREAKFAST (except for cooked food, that we didn’t taste): BANAL, medium (to low) quality.
