Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed here in January for 2 nights in their Victorian room and it has magnificent views over the bay from the private balcony (we saw 3 whales) .. it was spotlessly clean, the owners were outstanding hosts, the breakfasts were great and they have the loveliest old labrador called Themba who was always pleased to see us The place is very welcoming and I would reccomend it to anyone looking for a quality bed and breakfast.
