“Arrived as guests, left as friends, will return.”
Reviewed 3 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Pip and Oliver right from the get-go made us welcome without being over bearing, we are very independent self drive travelers. Pip and Oli have the balance just right re hosting, allowing the guest to do there own thing, excellent recommendations are available when requested.

“Comfort and hospitality”
Reviewed 27 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Hosts Pip and Oliver certainly made us feel very welcome, looking out for us while leaving us to do our own thing. The accommodation was comfortable without luxury, just what we wanted. Great views and walking access to the town and surrounding attractions. The breakfast was self serve after our complimentary visit to Sally's Restaurant for our first breakfast and the last night barbecue was delicious home cooked food with many stories and laughs to pass the evening away. If you are looking for personal attention then this BnB will suit you fine. As two couples we were fine but if you did not know the occupants of the suite you may find this not as suitable. Vaue for money.
