I love the retro look of this place. Great playground, pool and individual huge spas! What else could you want? We stayed here while visiting hobitton. The spa was just great and it's outside the room so the little one can stay and sleep inside! The room size was a bit small but everything needed was included. There is ample...

Smart clean and spacious accommodation, stayed twice during tour and got different rooms of equal standard. Parking on site and pool small, clean and safe. Owner very helpful and had money off coupons for local facilities. 10 minute walk to the all shops and restaurants. Trips booked pick up from here too.

Great place for a great price. Located across the road from a supermarket and walking distance to main shopping strip. Phil was more than willing to help plan activities, offering great advice and suggestion. Apartment was serviced everyday with beds made, fresh towels, tea and coffee provided daily. I highly recommend this place.
