Would stay there again if we needed accommodation in Gordon's Bay. Hosts were friendly and eager to please. Very convenient for our family trip . Should have constantly boiling water for Tea at breakfast.

Dear Barbara, thank you so much for your lovely comment about us and our offered services. But next time you come and stay with us for longer than 1 night. You should realize even a "hot water station" at our most loved and even awarded breakfast buffet and some more positive things. More

We found this place very last minute, after a problem with a different location. They had a last minute cancellation that came available and we were VERY grateful for the room. Sadly it was two short twins, but the room was tidy. Can't comment much on the facilities but the pool and garden looked lovely and breakfast was good
