              Nothing out of the ordinary. A spectacularly clean place, with cosy rooms. The hosts were lovely, helpful. The staff were friendly and very polite. The food was delicious. They really put extra effort into everything. The view from the balcony was amazing. Just beautiful. The place will come highly recommended by me.
