Worth a visit to see how the colonials lived. Not as many of the rooms opened as I expected, but a good enough taste of the luxury. Also had rum tasting, which is always welcome :)

At first sight the colonial chateau is splendid. The laneway leading towards the estate impressive and it certainly gives the feel of a grandeur era gone past. Inside, that feeling of splendour soon evaporates. Although great care has been taken to restore the house to...More

It's about 10 euro per adult to visit the mansion and a rum tasting. No guide or other service.
