very nice .......
Excellent accommodation in a very quiet place. Bedroom very tidy and clean, good breakfast. Perfect hosts, very helpful for everything, especially about how to get around in the city. Warm welcoming too. Buses can get you in the city centre in 15-30 minutes depending on the waiting time; perfect value for money!
Nice family. They helped me and my friend to carry our suitcase on our arrival and our departure. They also show us locations to eat around the house. They were very helpful.
We had a separate lounge for us where we can eat. The breakfast was good.
The bedroom was a bit small for two people and the bathroom even more. There were windows on the ceiling which bring light early in the morning.
We were sometimes disturbed by noise from the children especially in the morning.
Except for this point, it was a nice experience.
