As you can subsequently read I am quite fond of Hughes House, named after it's first inhabitant, and it's host: Kelly (said host) responded promply to my inquiry, and every subsequent mail I've sent him.
He was very welcoming and convivial from the start, taking his time to introduce me to the house and the guests, that were around, offering to take me groceries shopping, lending me his bicycle, and even taking me on a bike ride, showing me around town. He's always good for a restaurant recommendation and goes out of his way to make you feel at home. Furthermore, I found Kelly easy to get along with, he is quick to offer a good glass of red wine and some pleasant conversation. He also enjoys playing his antique piano, occasionally filling the living room with mellow tunes. And, if you're lucky, he might even invite you to one of his amazing "Wine & Schwein" (Pork) evenings.
The house is a beauty, over 100 years old and well maintained, full of knick knacks reminiscent of decades past. It is located on a quiet street, and downtown is easily reachable by foot. There are also a few pubs and restaurants within a 300m radius.
My room was lockable and furnished with a nice wooden dresser and desk. It was clean, as was the bathroom, and the bed was comfortable. I was provided with fresh towels, whenever I asked for them. All in all it was the best B&B-like accommodation I have had so far, and I felt very much at home.
