We stayed at the cottage which was not a lot more expencive than the room. The cottage is tidy and spacious. It has 2 beds and sleeps up to 3 people. This selfcontained cottage also has a kitchen area with everithing you may need and a living area with leather sofa, armchair, coffee table and a big flatscreen TV. There's a place to park a car in front of the cottage. Backing on to the river the cottage overlooks a sweet flowering garden. We saw Tui birds from the porch.
We loved the privacy of the cottage backing on to the river. But we've also spent some time in the shared lounge and enjoyed an evening at the fireplace together with other guests.
