Great place to stay with character, history, charm and friendly hosts. Breakfast simple but all we needed. Shared bathrooms unless you stay in the separate cabins out the back. We had high hopes for dinner after very good food on our NZ trip but it did disappoint. Wild venison came out as a fairly bland stew with boring roast veges. Wild boar the next night was almost identical! Would stay again for B&B only.
