We stayed for 6 nights in August 2014 and had a good stay. The team is great and nothing is too much trouble. Pearl & Joyce are lovely. The lodge is well located and we felt safe throughout our stay there. Breakfast is good and is always offered with a smile and friendly conversation, so it was very relaxing. It... More

My family and I stayed at this B&B and had a wonderful vacation. Joyce and Pearl were so nice and very helpful. We really felt at home. The environment was nice, calm and safe. We got a very warm reception by the entire staff. It is an ideal place for a family vacation.

I have reviewed this BnB before, a year ago and have changed my rating from a 4* to a 5*. Check-in was simple, everything was ready for me to sign. From the time I arrived until I was in my room was no more than 2 minutes. The room was large, with a full kitchenette. The heater had already been... More

This is an extremely well-run establishment and includes warm reception, caring and attentive hosts, without imposing themselves. I found the breakfast to offer a good range and the room is prepared for you in the evening, warm bottles during the cold nights, lights switched on if you are out for the evening, these are the things that make it homely...
