Very well located without a car but we would not stay here again. Not really a honeymoon hotel. Rooms were clean but mold in shower and bathroom areas. We spent little time in the room so it was not a major issue.

Leeu House



The bed was two twins that had been pushed together and then were made up separately with twin bedding, so that my wife and I couldn't sleep in the same bed together. Not suitable for a honeymoon. There was also no safe and no wireless in the room. The service was quite good and we actually liked the room d├ęcor, in its quirky way. But the bed problem was a BIG one.
