WOW!! This place totally exceeded our expectations, it was the second base for our honeymoon and it was breath taking!
This place is unique and has to be visited to be truely appreciated! The hosts are fab, the food was great, and as a veggie it was so good to have a choice of decent options for breakfast and not just a random veggie sausage taken out the freezer as an after-thought. I had a fab veggie grill with bubble and squeak and decent veggie sausages and everything else you would expect, the hubby had great full english breakfast and some friends we made over breakfast had such a fab looking and smelling fish-dish I was almost tempted to give up my strict veggie ways!
The rooms are tastefully decorated in a fun and imaginative way, I think from having a nose around and talking at breakfast that ech room is totally unique! We had a wet room en-suite and a massive double sized sink. The room was decadently decorated with plush pillows and cushions and we even had a leather arm chair. In the evenings we spent our time relaxing in the hot tub on the decking whilst watching the stars!
The service was fab, rooms were cleaned not whilst we were out for the day, but by the time we had finshed breakfast! The hosts recommended great palces to visit, and to eat, even making our reservation for us on the first night as we had no phone reception.
The hosts also soon cottoned on to the fact it was our honeymoon and on the last nght we came home to get ready for a final meal out to find trail of rose petals to our door, and our room scattered with fresh roses and confetti, home made choccies and botttle of wine! (I realised pretty quick that the hubby hadn't bothered to organise something this romantic, and it was all the hosts!)
What a fabulously romanitc way to end our honeymoon!
The biggest accolade I think this place can boast is that over breakfast another couple said that this was there second visit, and out of all the places they had stayed as a couple and claimed they would visist again, this was the only one they had ever actually gone back to.
I hope we get the pleasure of visiting a second time!
