Previous reviewers point out the ‘For Sale’ sign. By the time you read this Oscars may be sold as our sign was for an auction on the 9th of February.
It wasn’t what I expected actually being a large, quite new private house that was converted to a B&B (or if you wish boutique hotel) by current (?) owners. For this reason it doesn’t quite work as it is set up for a family rather than individual guests. Simple example is the large veranda downstairs rather than individual ones from each room.
For us however, while it was a fine overnight stop, it did nothing to set it apart from a workaday B&B. If it wasn’t for the lovely ladies who run the place it would be below average.
We had a TINY bedroom with dual aspect windows and if it reminded me of the importance of space in any hotel room. Décor neat, bathroom nice, super clean and minibar welcome.
Making your own tea and coffee for breakfast is OK if you know what to measure but working as I do with a Nespresso machine at home the tiny cafetiere was a mystery. When the breakfast came it was a triumph of size and style over flavour.
On the bright side Merrijig Kitchen was just across the road for dinner and we had a delicious meal within about two minutes of the front door. This made our stay. One night was fine but glad we didn’t stay a second.
