My colleague and I had the whole place to ourselves when we stayed here. Basil was great, very friendly with lots of stories to tell, including one about the resident ghost! Basil was very knowledgeable about the area and Victoria's history. Each of our rooms was divided into two small bedrooms, with an ensuite as well. There were lots of quaint sitting areas around the property, too. Basil also gave us a very good deal for the Leukaemia Foundation. Thanks for your support!
