Our stay was very good, we were alone to check-in early than normal as we needed to refresh before the wedding after a long drive. We were also welcomed with warmth and we indeed enjoyed our stay. Thank you

We had such a great stay for 2 nights, that we came back for another week! The owners make you feel truly welcome and comfortable. Breakfast is always on point and made to order. Rooms are clean, comfortable and the perfect size for a home away from home. Location is close to the city but tucked away from the noise....

From the time of making telephonic enquiries up and until the time we departed we were treated like old friends and enjoyed every aspect of the establishment. Lovely and quiet next to the brook babbling past, listening to the birds and monkeys in the trees of the forest. This is a call again B&B!

We stayed for two nights during a business trip to an unfamiliar city. We found the location of the B&B perfectly situated to address all of our needs including close access to the venue, malls, and restaurants.

Rooms are a bit outdated, bud the breakfast is very good and in a cosy common breakfast room. Nice stay. Car can be parked inside the compound. Lovely owners and the breakfast room is a nice place to talk to the other guests. The restaurants are rather far away, 15 mimutes car drive.

Another wonderful stay at this very special place run by very special people. Our 4th time in 3 years - always the same excellence. Homely, clean, country chic rooms plus the awesome breakfasts - fresh fruits, various hot choices, quality juices as well as coffee & home made muffins makes it a winner every time. Thanks Morag & Gordon for...

Excellent accommodation with very friendly hosts. The only downside, and this is only if you have a large vehicle - the bushes on the steep driveways are somewhat overgrown and make access a little difficult. Also, there is no separate bathroom, so make sure you share with a very close friend.
