Thank you for your kind review. Fran herself discontinued the rock several weeks before she left. At the present time we are concentrating on making sure the basic functions of well prepared rooms and a hearty breakfast continue in a smooth manner. Once these routines are established my wife will add the baking of home made cakes for guests to... More

We have stayed at Southern Breeze many times and Mal and Fran were always helpful, efficient and couldn't do enough for you. Unfortunately Mal & Fran have now retired and best of luck to them. Unfortunately we were less than impressed with our stay this time. Our breakfast orders took around 45 minutes most mornings with toast being bought out... More

Just recently returned after a short stay with my daughter at Malcolm and Fran's lovely B & B. I have stayed there for the last few years and each year I seem to enjoy it more. Everything from the hosts, to the food,to the cleanliness you name it this place has cracked it in abundance. Another wonderful break.
