Pros:Outstanding service, the elder guest house staff will do anything to make you comfortable, and welcome. The breakfasts were outstanding, and the 30 second walk to the tram is just another reason to stay here. My adult son and I loved it. I would return any time and will recommend to anyone.
Cons:There was no negatives.
