Very nice stay in Falkland!
We really enjoyed our stay here! The rooms were decorated so nicely and the bed was very comfortable. There was ample space for bags too. Our only constructive criticism point would be that we weren't aware the "private" bathroom meant that it wasn't an ensuite. It didn't matter at the end of the day since we were the only people using the bathroom, but just something to perhaps clarify for guests in the future that it's not connected to your room. Great breakfast; lovely host; overall a great stay!

Very pleasant and friendly. Excellent professionalism. I had an evening meal which was more than plentiful. Falkland itself is small and quaint and perfect for a quiet stopover
