Superb location - about two minutes walk to the quay with its popular cafes and bars and about ten minutes to the centre of town and the beautiful cathedral square.

Cindy is the best host ever!!! This place is far more better than any five-star hotel since it actually gives you the feeling of coming home and a really warm home! The room is sweet and tidy, Cindy made a small bed for my thee year old daughter and made her so happy! She even prepared a book for her. The facilities in the room are mindful and thoughtful. The bathroom is clean and well-decorated, there are so many choices for the shampoo and body soap. The breakfast is the best breakfast ever, she prepared nice drink and baked food even fresh fruits and yogurt! This is a place I will definitely recommend to all my friends and we will looking forward to next stay!

Great location, a short walk to the quay or the city centre, very comfortable and quiet. We would certainly recommend this as a great place to stay. Cindy was very welcoming and helpful, breakfast delicious and the Hour Glass pub, as recommended by Cindy only a mere stones throw away is a must. Cracking small pub with great great creative cuisine. Not to be missed!!

Our stay with Cindy was absolutely wonderful! The breakfast was delicious and plentiful including fruit, yoghurt, baked goods (croissants and bread), Cindy was super welcoming and had great tips for travel in the area and she let us use the kitchen to prepare an easy dinner after being very tired of travelling all day and she even joined us and made a delicious salad for us! Really recommend.
