Friendly host with a wonderful posse of great dogs. I felt welcomed throughout and really enjoyed the company of the lovely dogs - 2 Irish wolfhounds and a Saluki, who despite their sizes, are just big babies.

Excellent. Karin was so hospitable. Everything was neat and clean and the breakfast served was not only done so beautifully but was more than generous.

Had a wonderful stay. Karen made us feel most welcome. The room was clean and beautifully decorated with handmade african curios. The champagne breakfast was the cherry on top. We will definately stay there again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and felt at home with the friendly owner, Karen, and her lovely pets. We were served a delicious breakfast - definitely good value and the pretty garden made for a tranquil setting.
