    Great location

    Excellent location, if a bit dated in design. Comfortable with all amenities.

    Superb position. Safe area close to the Waterfront. Excellent friendly hosts. Great choice for four days exploring CT.

    Book it for unique style

    The photos correspond to what it really is. The breakfast was tasty and fresh, but boring - every day the same and limited in options. One would for example expect better juices for that type of guesthouse. The rooms were clean and fresh. The bed pretty hard, it's a matter of taste obviously. The area is peaceful, but not much interesting around. The owners were flexible with check-in time. Not much with the breakfast. We were refused to have an earlier breakfast or packed sandwich when going to safari, while other couple had breakfast earlier. We didn't like not even treatment of all guests. The owners were kind and chatty, sometimes pushy in selling hop-on hop-off bus tickets or local services. If you have nothing organized in the trip, it might be helpful. Otherwise it might feel intrusive. Book this place if you want daily chat with the owners, if you are ready to share your day activities with others, if you want more personal treatment. Do not book if you are reserved person and prefers to be anonymous. Overall the place has ' a soul', style and much more unique design than white wall rooms in many other hotels.
