    Our room was super clean, and in a great area. The facilities in our room were a bit outdated but the service made up for this (and the owners are sooo lovely! They plan to do this room up soon). Highly recommend this place!

    Wish we could have stayed longer! Our room was modern and spotless. Our portacot fit in the bedroom and the main room had enough open space for our youngest to roll around on the floor. Nice appliances and plenty of cookware, so you can cook your own meals if necessary. We only stayed one night but would have extended our stay if there was vacancy. If I had to fault the place, my only tiny complaint is that the curtain in the bedroom wasn’t snug against the window, so the room was very light during the day (difficult to get the wee one to nap) but honestly, that’s being very picky. We’ll definitely be back!
