    I was the only guest in the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at dinner and breakfast was excellent.
    The bedroom was comfortable. I thought the bathroom was a bit too small.

    I did not like having to pay for internet access. I was used to free wifi at even small guesthouses.
