“Large and elegant guest house”
Reviewed 14 January 2008

Lovely old property with large, well furnished rooms and elegant dining room and lounge. We were served breakfast out on the terrace each day, and the kids loved the pool. Recommended. In Australia this would be marketed as a boutique hotel rather than a Guest House!

Wonderful owners, fantastic view, pool, breakfast, rooms. Everything was as good or better than I imagined. My room was enormous with its own deck, very cozy large bed, and a bathroom the size of most hotel rooms. I loved it!

Stayed April 2006
