                                  The service was great. I recommend Barthelemews Loft above any B&B. I am a regular visitor and I have been visiting Bartholemews Loft for years. I stayed at other unknown B&B. I can compare the service and I can speak of experience. Interior is great and every time I come here they are always improving the B&B.

                                  We liked the light, bright, modern room with its very comfortable bed, everything you could need, friendly staff and cute courtyard, with sparkling pool. Therefore we found it to be an excellent stopover.

                                  Bartholomews Loft is a beautiful place and one of the best places I’ve ever been to. The service was fantastic, the rooms was well equipped, comfortable and the floors was magnificent. I was very impress with my stay and will definitely go back anytime.

                                  It was one night. The staff was helpful, friendly and our bedroom was comfortable. We slept well and we were happy with everything.

                                  My stay was really good, I enjoyed my time there. I was a single traveler and I felt very safe and secure there, which was really vital to me. I had a really easy stay, no fuss and no hassles. The owners were friendly and offered their help whenever I needed. Thank you for a lovely stay.
