Liked: Great character property - colourful and lots of quirkiness. Liked the art corner.The kitchen was pretty good and nice to cook in - fabulous free shelf.

Disliked: Isn't quite enough toilet/bathroom facilities for the number of people.On a rainy day the communal area is a bit small for the amount of people - somewhere else to go would have been good.

Liked: This was a really cute and communal place. We only stayed one night but would have loved to stay more there and take advantage of the art and baking supplies!

Disliked: I don't really have anything to add here. Maybe that the showers were a bit hot-then-cold-then-hot-again.

Liked: We booked a private bedroom and it had its own kitchen and bathroom which was large roomy clean and well equipped. We had very good towels supplied too and the staff were great. They even baked us soom beautiful cinamon buns hot from the oven. Better being located on the edge of the town because it could be noisy in summer.The trip to see the whales and dolphins was fantastic.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike
