Andrew and Anneke are the best hosts of any guest house I have ever been to. They are attentive, caring and nothing is too much to ask. The rooms themselves are very spacious, and beautifully decorated. I would recommend requesting a room on the upper level as they have great views. However, once you step out your door you can wander as you please and take in all the beauty. There are paddocks with cows, a river running nearby and a great view of the nearby mountains. The accommodation is perfect to book out for small to medium weddings and parties. We were there for my mother's 50th, and it was perfect. The food was also top quality, especially the breakfasts! I also went for an early morning walk and managed to spot 38 different bird species in 2 hours, which was impressive. Anneke showed us the chapel which is gorgeous, with custom stained glass windows, and Andrew showed us the trophy room with endless motoring history. The venue would be perfect for any motoring enthusiasts groups. All in all there isn't anything bad I can say about the establishment or the staff, it was a highly enjoyable, homely weekend experience.
