Happened upon this place after a frustrating day on the road. It was a quiet haven. Very comfortable bed, great aircon/heater, large shower with great water pressure, and a microwave in every room. Wonderfully friendly and helpful owners and a continental breakfast included in the tariff. Definitely recommend.

Fantastic getaway not far from the airport. The hosts Garry and Michelle make your stay feel like a home away from home. Lovely spacious rooms with plenty of room for a portacot. Very family friendly... the pool area is beautiful just a shame it was too cold for a swim... definately next time as we will be back! Thankyou again

We used this place as a base for exploring the local area. We had a very friendly welcome so booked a second night on the spot. We stayed in a standard queen room, which was small but adequate for our needs. The only criticism was that we could hear talking in the next room. The next night, we were upgraded... More
