 Nice place to stay. Very compact but lovely, spotlessly clean living space. Easy walk to town. Could see the lake from the room. Parking on road, nice quiet area.

 Nice studio and close to town. Very clean and tidy and probably the best shower we had all holiday! Lovely comfortable bed and plenty of towels. Not forgetting the neighbour who was very helpful too.
