As our advertising is largely by word of mouth, we are fortunate to have the best guests in the world! People across a range of professions come back repeatedly and send their friends and colleagues here. We are also highly rated in Frommers Travel Guide and Trip Advisor.

We have had a stable staff component since the inception of our business, more than a decade ago, and we offer a number of facilities, including a laundry service. The property is wi-fi and we are frequently complimented on the comfort of our beds, which have superb mattresses and good quality pure cotton sheets. We are committed to maintaining high standards and hope that you will enjoy the rather eclectic style which is a mix of genuine sturdy old furniture, art from Africa, and some unexpected artefacts and treasures!
