This establishment is well run (both the pervious and new management), spotlessly clean, quiet, affordable and comfortable. This is my 8th stay here this year; could have done a lot worse. Well deserving of a 5 rating.

Stayed here for a sports trip and booked three family spa units. The owners were fantastic to deal with and nothing was an issue. The rooms were large, modern, clean and beds were very comfortable. Easy to find and close to supermarkets, food outlets and only a short drive to town.
