We travelled from Australia to see particular sites in Amherst and chose this place for a three night stay. We did not regret it. This is a great place to spend a few days. We chose the downstairs room, and even though we could occasionally hear people walking around upstairs, they were quiet and did not bother us at all.
Our hostess was cordial and laid-back, while being judiciously attentive to our needs.
Spending a couple of quiet hours in the magnificent garden of a late afternoon was a delight. Breakfasts were healthy, substantive and delicious.
The room was beautiful and quaint, in keeping with the overall style of the premises. Apart from being situated close to a roadway which is moderately busy during the daylight hours, we didn't notice the traffic at all.
We also enjoyed the company of Bruce and Sophie, the owner's two cats. We hope that Bruce's paw, which was in plaster while we were there, has mended well.
