A cozy place to stay with a craft vibe. We were met by the owner and were warmly welcomed. Our room was the family suite with a master bed room, bunk bed and separate single bed, with private bathroom. Also had a separate entrance off the master to a balcony which was cool. Breakfast is included as is access to... More

Recently we had the pleasure of staying here at Gourmet stay for 7 days. The place is close enough that I didn't need the car to get around. Everything we wanted to see and do was within walking distance. So the location is amazing. Every morning there was a delicious breakfast available ...and on the house..(so that saved me from...

I arrived early but even so, my room was already cleaned and waiting for me. A quiet area but even so well within proximity to walk to the sites that interested me. A very nice and friendly atmosphere for the time I was there. I would recommend this to anyone.

We stayed in the room with 3 dorm beds on the ground floor, and were greeted with the lovely aroma of coffee from the cafe each time we entered the main entrance. Miriam also offered us delicious homemade scones while we waited for our friends at the cafe. The room and shared bathroom were clean. Location was convenient, we were... More

I was surprised by how nice this. I stayed one night in a three bunk bed room. Most Comfortable bunk bed I've slept in. Very clean too. The manager Miriam emailed instructions on how to get into the building as I arrived late. She also booked a taxi to pick me up early the next morning to go to the... More

I must stress communications and accomodation arrangements were easy to organise with Miriam, and found staff waiting for us for check in and eager to help at breakfast. We had a hot tub room, which is worth paying for if you are going to spend quite some time in there. However what let the hotel down was the tiny box... More

I have stayed here before but during our recent stay the cafe closed to the publc and is now just hotel style including breakfast. The chef from previous is still there and cooks food for the continental breakfast, choc croissants, cheese scones etc so you cant get any fresher as they are still hot. Enough choices for breakfast We had... More
