It was peaceful and clean, with relly nice view over gardens. Staff were helpful and friendly and very accommodating. The beds were a bit on the hard side, but the rooms were spacious and comfortable.

The rooms and the fascilities are just great. You should try and get access for your guests to the board walk/ deck to get a closer view to the quarry dam. The receptionist was cold and reluctant to assist and that just annoyed me. She is probably racist. She didn't seem to be getting along well with the kitchen. The... More

Nestled in a tranquil setting, this quaint inn is a comfortable hideaway for the business traveller, yet within easy reach of the bustling activity of the city centre. Would not hesitate to recommend!

What a fabulous weekend away :) An idyllic little hide away in the middle of town! One awakens to birds singing and a feelling of peace as the sun rises. Friendly staff providing excellent service. A definite must on your list of places to visit!

Had a very good and quiet stay. The atmosphere was very calm and gave me plenty of time to relax and reflect. The breakfast reminded me of the good old days I spent with my wonderful grand mother. Very homely and inviting. The soft rain coming down as I watched the quarry from the deck was very therapeutic. This has... More

Great experience, prompt assistance, very comfortable rooms, 2 prong plugs was stunning, as hardly anyone provides that. Accomodate smokers on your very own balcony overlooking the gardens and quarry lake. Spacious modern bathroom and shower. Luxury tucked away.
