We stayed here last year when it was run by a delightful mother and daughter team. The hospitality and food were wonderful.
The building owners now run it and we will never return.
Rooms have suddenly become 'suites', the alpacas were shipped out last year but are still claimed to be on the property, their idea of a wonderful breakfast is a few packs of Kellogs and some ordinary looking sliced fruit.
The new cancellation charges are extraordinarily high compared to other accomodation and mean that you lose the entire cost of the stay if you have to cancel within 7 days and lose some $40 per night if you cancel even 3 months ahead. They even advise not to book here unless you take out travel insurance. Little wonder that their booking page shows them almost empty for January and February when great little motels like The Waterfront are invariably busy.
Sensitively restored isn't the place we stayed at. It was a somewhat tired old house in need of a bit of TLC. The shower corner in the Tulip room is one of the most insensitive pieces of 'renovation' I have ever had the misfortune to see.
The review by lisaaw was a review for the property under the mother and daughter team.....daughter ran a fabulous cooking school from the property and every meal was outstanding. She even made her own breakfast cereal which was sensational. Hard to imagine her showing a pack of Kellogs as a breakfast.
