Wasn't sure what to expect when my husband informed me our last couple of nights of our holiday were to be the Tickle Pink Inn. I had visions of a romantic novel property, all pink and frilly! Not so! We were impressed with the set up and although the outside of the building looked a bit tired and 60's (not in a funky retro way) the room we had was lovely. The decor and furnishings were good quality and tasteful. The bathroom was a good size and nice and clean. Champagne on arrival was a nice surprise. We really enjoyed the wine and cheese on the terrace each evening and we chatted with some lovely people. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and set us up beautifully each morning. We had a room with a fantastic view, and as with most properties with a view I know you have to book these room specifically (and pay a bit more). It is well worth it at this property. Perfect property for couples with no children in tow. Because of the location (out of township) and siting (steep hill setting) it is not perfect for all travellers. However, I would have no hesitation recommending the Tickle Pink Inn to specific friends and family and to couples looking for something a little different. It was a good surprise and we have taken very happy memories back to Australia with us.
