Stayed for three nights in the Morrocan room. Great location - just outside Yungaburra so nice and quiet but convenient for the village. Comfy bed, nice spa and delicious breakfasts. The big garden gives opportunity for walks and birdwatching. Only complaint was the weather - but even the best B&B hosts can't control that!!!!

A lovely find. Peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. Our Moroccan room was beautiful and the bed was to die for. The generous spar bath was inviting and great for unwinding. Breakfast was worthy of a fine dining restaurant. Highly recommend the pancakes and the bacon & egg muffin. Both were filling and delicious. Look forward to visiting again next time and... More

The breakfasts were fantastic too, highly recommend Jorg's... More

We had a very warm welcome and Jörg told us a lot how we could spent our time. The Africa Room impressed us very much. Bed, room and bathroom are big enough for more than a couple. Just a few steps through the garden and we can jump into the pool. The food path to the city, to the river... More
