Overnight stay was good. Hosts were very kind with excellent service, modern clean facilities. Rooms have been updated. The included breakfast was an added bonus. Would recommend as a must stop of passing through Raymond terrace, such close location to the main roads.

But it is the service that makes it so outstanding. Yes there is a swimming pool, spa, barbecue and there are well-kept grounds, but there is an amazing host couple for which nothing is too much trouble. Free breakfasts are varied and fresh.
