We were so lucky to be able to stay at Sunderland House as our first stop on our journey Down Under! Arriving on a very early flight and with the advice from Donald on getting a shuttle, we arrived to a very warm welcome and fresh muffins and orange juice (we don't drink coffee but it was available). He had lots of suggestions on what to do and where to go - most helpful. The green room was spacious and very comfortable. Attention to detail seems to be Donald's forte! The location was great. The port and chocolates at the end of the day made for a wonderful nightcap while talking about our day. Donald's breakfasts were amazing that included fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt, homemade muesli, fresh baked muffins and amazing fresh homemade bread! Cappuccino and espresso was also available as well as assorted teas. He is a warm and gracious host that we really enjoyed chatting with while waiting for our airport shuttle to leave. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone!
