It was a well organised stay with friendly hosts that were accomodating to our needs. Beautiful views and located centrally, lovely rooms and a bar that works on integrity as you leave money for what you used, definately value for money.

Very good location,excellent view of Maydon Wharf from the verandah/bar/lounge. Bed was noisy, Room was very good. Vehicle gate closes too quickly, can knock into vehicle when entering or leaving premises. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. Generally the property is well maintained. Breakfast times are inflexible.
