Liked: The helpful of the staff

Disliked: The location in the town is not bad, because the place is lovely, but broadford is too little and doesn't have many things to do on it only if you love peaceful. I really recommend to all the travelers to rent a car to get around in the island, because the bus is really complicated to use it.
