We only came here by coincidence, but it was perfect. Clean room and a very nice host. The view from the lounge where breakfast is served is fantastic. The breakfast itself offers everything you need at the morning. We can highly recommend this place.

Lovely place, clean, free wifi, towels changed daily. Free parking, breakfast included. Breakfast is served upstairs in a large dining room with the hosts fussing over you, great hospitality. Lovely hosts. The view from the dining room is stunning. Would stay there again.

We spent a couple of nights there as a base for our far north stay. tidy, clean rooms. The breakfasts were cooked to perfect. Ask for a bacon buttie. Great hosts, very friendly and welcoming. They checked to make sure we were up when we were running late for our bus. Highly recommended

We stayed 3 nights over the new year period. While not on the beach, the units overlook Doubtless Bay and it's only 2 minutes in the car to Cooper's Beach. The accommodation is comfortable and in a quiet location. We had everything we needed. The most memorable part of our stay was being welcomed by the hosts to breakfast around... More

Very kind and welcoming hosts. The room had a table and wifi for working and also a dressing table for doing hair and make-up. Breakfast was fantastic-made to order as early as needed-generous servings and with a wonderful view. A nice extra was the borrowing library in reception.

We stayed here for two nights a couple of weeks ago. Barbara and Ian were great hosts and served a delicious breakfast, where we could sit out in the sun and enjoy the views. Accommodation was spacious, clean and tidy. Would recommend.
