“Not a single problem - perfect, would definitely stay again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2011

A small but very clean and modern complex, very warm and comfortable in a good location off the main street, with next to no traffic noise whatsoever. A great nights sleep, and the radiator heating makes it toasty warm.

An undercover carport was definitely a bonus which was greatly appreciated.

Also we enjoyed a great meal at the Lumberjack Restaurant which the lovely owner/operator recommended to us.

Would definitely stay again, everything was just great.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2010

Looks like a pretty standard place although we didn't actually end up staying here as we had a date mix up and the person we delt with (presumably owner / operator) was so unneccessarily rude we didn't bother going back for our prepaid night.

Stayed December 2010, travelled as a couple
