Negative Reviews

Rooms are a little small

There have been complaints about the rooms being too small at this property. Guests have said that they didn't have enough space to set their luggage or walk around once they had reached their rooms.

Difficult to find

Guests have reported that the bed and breakfast is a little difficult to find. This is because it's entrance is located on a roundabout, so it sneaks up very quickly when you haven't been there before.

Breakfast at set time

While guests found the food at breakfast to be quite good, they didn't like the fact that they had to let the hosts known what time they would want to eat when checking in. In addition, guests have been forced to place their order for breakfast the night before and they didn't like this procedure.
