Verified reviewvery good

What a beautiful authentic place! Close to everything, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Christine was very helpful and the room was beautifully decorated. This was the guest house with about the best breakfasts I have ever had at all the places I have ever stayed in. So much effort put into this and not just your regular bacon and eggs (although) also on the menu. We loved the Green Acorn!
