What a beautiful escape from the rigors of the big city. A well appointed, historic building with spotlessly clean bedrooms and public areas, a welcoming drinks tray, comfortable relaxing lounges, and a very inviting swimming pool in the garden.
Breakfast was casually served with fresh fruit, freshly baked goods, a hot dish selection, cereals, gramola and some of the best yogurt I've ever had. All locally sourced ingredients, packed with flavor and a great start to your day exploring the surrounding areas. Kim, the housekeeper was very friendly.
The owner Bruce is very knowledgeable on activities and gave us some great cycle routes, both on and off the road. He and his wife were available, while not being over bearing, even rescuing us remotely when we locked our keys in the room.
Rooms are air conditoned, albeit a little noisy, it's certainly effective. The bed was so comfortable and the linens were crisp and welcoming. The bathrooms were relatively modern, with a good shower, but the hair dryer will challenge people with long hair.
Room sizes vary, so be sure to check the website before selecting your room.
There's tea and coffee facilities in the dining room, available 24 hours, but none in the rooms. Picnic baskets are available, as are towels for the pool. However, there's no bathroom at the pool, you will need to go back through the main lounge to find a public bathroom.
There seemed to be a lot of repeat visitors and we plan to also return next time we visit Lee.
At $300 a night over the holiday weekend, it was a little higher than similar properties in the area, but having stayed we think it was worth the premium.
