          Très bonne Guesthouse”

          Nous aimons réservé 3 chambres pour 2 nuits. La Guesthouse est très bien située dans le quartier Melville, on peut tout faire à pied dans le quartier. 2 des 3 chambres étaient petites mais l'ensemble reste très agréable, elles sont situées autour d'une cour interieure calme. Le petit déjeuner est copieux et réalisé à la demande. Le rapport qualité prix est excellent. Le seul point négatif est l'accueil qui reste assez froid.
