    Norma and Chris are great hosts. They are very keen on personal contact with the guests, and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast is yummy and includes no sugar muesli and low GI bread. We had a great 2 days stay and will definitely come back.

    Norma and Chris were wonderful, helping us take our suitcases in and we're very friendly and hospitable. Chris was up when we left and again helped us. We didn't have time for breakfast but I'm sure that it would be delicious! Highly recommend...
