Guest Comments

Very good value for money, the service provided even for such short stays was excellent and the cleanliness beyond reproach.
- Graham Maytham30 Oct 2012

Very pleasant. Only down side was sitting behind a cage on the veranda.
- Angus Ovendale17 Apr 2012

We were really impressed with the size and cleanliness of the unit. We only stayed for one night, which is our only regret.
