We stayed for the first night of our holiday after a long flight from Sydney.
The location is excellent being just 5 mins drive from the airport. The house retains all it's charm and the rooms are first class. I loved the bathroom in our room.
We were the only guests staying and were looked after like family. The service was excellent.
If your looking for a first night hotel before heading off down the garden route then this is the place. It's way, way better than the rather faulty towers look it has on it's web site :).
