Lovely old house with perfect location, quiet street just around the corner from anything you would want. Shops, restaurants, waterfront etc. Very helpful and approachable staff, especially Jason ;) The main bathroom's window was locked so it did get a little stuffy at times, but that's honestly my biggest complaint.
