What a lovely stop over: highly recommend. We felt safe and nourished and enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast. Nothing seemed too much trouble and the staff were friendly and efficient: we would go back and also do recommend this and a perfect stop over.

Thanks Dawn - we hope to see you again. Please send me details of your guest house in Salt Rock. We'd love to stop by some time. Thank you for being so appreciative - being a host yourself, you know what that means..... Take care Anita

The most awful customer service I have ever experienced! The room was extremely cold and dusty. When I complained about this, I received a page long response about what I could do to keep warm, including taking a hot shower! I requested a room change and was told they were fully booked. When I pointed out that I had seen the housekeeper cleaning several empty rooms, the court response was, 'And which rooms might that be?" On checking out, I was told "we did everything to make you comfortable, and you didn't say thank you". What cheek! I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Mam, there was no way we could satisfy you, although we tried. Your aircon was running at 32 degrees, you had an electric blanket, and sufficient other blankets.... your bed was too small so we made you a kingsize bed, my reply was too long, your room was dusty and you could not stop sneezing, I can go on and on. The honest truth? We were happy to see you go.

I asked and pay for two rooms, on arrival there was only one available. Apparently the owners were on holidays, the acting manager made a mistake, she gave us a room in her own house, very brave of her.
