Look, don't get me wrong. The grounds & gardens are beautiful. We also had a wonderful (!!) meal in the restaurant upstairs. It was excellent. But the room are TINY. I would have to say, using rooms in the UK as a benchmark (they are often very small), I think these are the smallest I've stayed in anywhere. We had to do headstands to fit our bags in (& they weren't big bags). There was barely room along the side of the bed to get into bed. The bathroom however was a good size & nicely renovated. And we enjoyed our walk down the road to the beach. So there are some pluses! Furthermore, I can live with a small room. But to charge well over $200 for this level of accommodation is a bit rich I think. I would endure the small room for a more reasonable price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In early 2002 the original dormitory rooms of the historical "Morning Star Boys' Home" were modified to create a 20 room Guest House. Originally there were 30 dormitory rooms with communal facilities; these were altered by converting every second room into two en suites. Formerly the dormitory rooms housed 4 or 6 boys, and were kept small due to structural requirements. However you don't live in your rooms when visiting Morning Star Estate, there are beautiful garden areas and vineyards around the estate waiting to be explored and enjoyed. Our rooms are modest yet priced fairly. The Guest House consists of 15 Double Rooms (with double bed), 4 Queen Rooms and 1 Queen Spa Suite (with queen bed or twin beds), all have their own en suites. For socialising and relaxation we provide Guest Lounges and various outside areas for enjoying the scenery. ... more less
