We came here for breakfast. The staff were friendly and happy to make accommodations.I don't eat food with added sugar so the chef made up a special batch of porridge for me as theirs is pre made with brown sugar. Both my mums and my meals were huge and tasted delicious.

The food although very nice and filling it was a bit over priced for homestyle cooking and were quite shocked to have paid $5 for a glass of coke!!!!.

I am so sorry that you feel we were over-priced. From our other feed back most people feel that they are getting good value for money. May I suggest that you should talk to us at the time so that we might be able to respond pro-actively. This is probably a good thing to do wherever you go. More
