What was about to be a disaster of a weekend trip to McGregor was saved by the wonderful Jill. Our party of 5 had booked self catering accommodation in the town and to cut a long story short, it wasn’t what was advertised. Our option was either to drive home (3 hours away in 40 degrees) or head to the Visitors Bureau. The staff phoned Jill to explain our situation and she was so accommodating – arranging a fridge for our food and making plans for 2 of the party way beyond the call of duty.
The accommodation is in cottages – 2 ensuite bedrooms separated by an entrance hall – and they are lovely.
And let’s not forget the gorgeous food that Tiger prepares! We were fortunate to be there over a weekend when the Inn provides evening meals and the food was delicious.
Jill, Tiger, Denzel (the very important poodle) and Clinton (Tiger and Jill’s son – and yes, he knows the rank and order of the household coming in behind Denzel!) could not have been more welcoming and accommodating – they definitely know how to do hospitality!
