We had a terrific stay here. Very well set up for families with a great games room, delicious home-style meals. And of course spectacular location!

Exceptionally friendly staff and although our room was perhaps basic it was immaculately clean. We will definitely go again. Greatest night of rest and not only because of a loooong day but due to the friendly people in a beautiful setting!!! Locals also guided us as not to take wrong routes.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5
