The rooms were still being refurbished and needed to be finished though, also check-in was a bit late. Had to wait forever for warm water when i wanted to shower. Breakfast was awesome!!! Will go there again as it well priced. Could to with a bar fridge.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review your stay at Bumblebees. If by "check-in was a bit late" you mean that you feel check-in after 2 pm is too late / unreasonable - i think you'll find this is standard in the hospitality industry and not unique to Bumblebees. Having said that, we frequently have people wishing to... More

I think Bumblebee is a nice getaway place if you are looking for quietness and relaxation as well as personal service. I don't think the place is suited for noisy party animals as you will disturb the peace of other guests and you may damage other guests' cars given limited parking space. Please read the terms and conditions of the... More

What does someone in the hospitality business look for when travelling. The answer is simple. Friendly greeting on arrival, good instruction regards facilities in the room, clear times for breakfast, a pleasant outlook from the room, secure parking, clean room and bedding, well serviced on a daily basis, a good knowledge of the local area and the facilities it offers....

The accommodation was spacious and very well equipped, looking out over the swimming pool. Monkeys occasionally pass through the overlooking trees which provided an interesting spectacle and entertainment. A full and varied breakfast was served on the patio.

Stayed here for a week and everything was perfect. Location was great but you do need a car. Accommodation was beautiful and comfortable and had everything we needed. The bathroom was huge and the bed was super soft and comfortable. Our rooms were cleaned daily which was a lovely surprise. I loved walking out of my room and having such... More

Stayed at Bumblebees over Christmas this year during our trip from UK and found everything to be perfect. Very relaxing and Phil and Alison are great hosts with a lot of useful local information. Rooms are comfortable, pool lovely and the breakfasts are superb. Would definitely stay again. Thanks again, Brian Julie and family
