The animal refuge was great. The food was even better.

Friendly service, lovely view, food moderately expensive but great. Wine expensive but take transport into account. This is one of our favourite Sounds places, also excellent place for family outings.

Great food at the restaurant, no hair dryers in the rooms, boat ride over $55.00 each was really over priced if you are staying there as well. It cost as much to there as to stay there.
