We spent one night in a Grafton chalet. Because the chalets are on top of a steep hill, the best feature was the deck with a great view of the town and Firth of Thames. Lots of birds hopping around in the trees and a great take-out fish and chips dinner from the wharf nearby were highlights. The upstairs bedroom was very comfortable and quiet. Downstairs, the bathroom and main room, while clean, were a bit "frayed around the edges". Breakfast was very basic but adequate. The driveway into the chalets is narrow and steep in spots so may be difficult for a large vehicle. Since the car parking is not immediately at the chalets, it may also be difficult if carrying a lot of luggage although the friendly hosts volunteered to help with this.
