The guesthouse was spotless, well kept and serviced promptly. The suburb it is situated in is quiet and pleasant. The service was excellent, Sandy was friendly, efficient and helpful. Thank for a lovely stay.

sandy, the owner of big 5 Accommodation, went out of her way to ensure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Sandy made us feel at home at all times and ensured that we never wanted for anything. Big 5's food was delicious and well presented and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Thank you Sandy. We will definitely be returning!!

During my 2 week stay here, Sandy and her fantastic daughters have made my young daughter and I feel part of the family. The rooms are incredibly clean ( not bad from an ocd clean freak like myself!) her maids are so friendly and polite they can not do enough to help. The big 5 has really made my visit... More

Very nice safe, peaceful place to stay. Our kids enjoyed every minute of it as they were able to play in the garden. The breakfasts were scrumptious, and the overall stay was wonderful. We throughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks Sandy. See you soon. X

Within 10 minutes of arrival we felt at home. Relaxed atmosphere, personal service & genuine concern for your comfort and needs. Good security. Breakfast was a pleasant tasty social occasion each morning.

We had an overnight stay in the . Spacious, clean and comfortable room with normal amenities one would find in a family class hotel (just no air-con, but an air cooler is provided). Friendly and accommodating hosts and a scrumptious breakfast makes this B&B a high recommendation.

The rooms are clean and well serviced every day.. great breakfast (omelette recommended) and evening meal if you plan ahead,, but many restaurants and takeaways locally if you don’t/
