This place is just great; quirky, welcoming, homely and a little different. Staff were friendly, and the owner was a lovely chap, honest and chatty. The bungalows are comfy, big and the bathrooms are at one with nature! There wasn't really any hot water in our bungalow which was the only downside - but maybe this was just a blip.... More

a great last minute find. we booked in so last minute and were welcomed like kings and queens plus it was the holiday new year season and staff must surely have been wanting to go home to family but we certainly weren't made to feel this was the case - we seriously cannot recommend this place more highly - and...

This hotel is set in a very peaceful location and the rooms are really nice with an outdoor seating area, the bathroom was a little strange as it was down some steps and it got extremely hot in there, also the shower was open air, although there was some netting over the top I wasn't sure if other people could...

Because the booking experience was a bit, let's say, haphazard we were a bit apprehensive about this place but were pleasantly surprised and can only echo the comments of others. The chalet was spacious, comfortable and well decorated, the setting quiet and peaceful, the food was good and plentiful and the service very friendly. Given the fairly remote location our... More

My wife and I stayed at the ESH for two nights. We stayed in the air-conditioned Peacock chalet, which was roomy with an equally roomy bathroom that had an open air shower. There was also a deck at the back of the chalet. The service was excellent and the staff were always willing to help, e.g. tea in our room... More
