As a family of four we stayed in the 2 bedroom detached unit facing the road. The unit looked as if it had recently been revamped, so the bathroom was quite modern. Very clean and comfortable, with great heating during the winter. Spacious and cosy unit. Would happily stay here again. The bonus of staying here was being so close... More

The cottages are located just off the main street, within easy walking distance of everything in town but also really quiet and private. The cottage itself was a good size, clean and comfortable. However, it takes a little longer than 10 minutes for the heater to actually get going. The staff were fairly welcoming and go through the different restaurant... More

When we arrived it was cold and we found that the windows had been left slightly ajar in the cottage and no heating was on. After reading the information book about the cottage they encourage you to only use the heater when necessary as they try to conserve power and it should only take 10 minutes to warm the room...

Brilliant place to stay, so affordable and the little cottages are still quite spacious. Kitchenette and bathrooms were great and the whole place was clean! There was a laundry available to use as well. Nice little walk to the pubs and restraints. Really great place would definitely stay again!!

Great view out the windows, and a nice little unit. Had everything we needed, I especially liked the plunger coffee available, and the hot chocolate. Also the eco-wash in the shower was a good touch. I like places that don't wash towels every day of use throwaway stuff. Good stuff guys.

We just had one night here recently and found the cottages very good, they were very clean and tidy, plenty of room and a nice spot off the main road and looking out to the bush. Staff were friendly. Great walking distance to the locals shops.
