Good morning Kaydee and many thanks for taking the time to review. It really helps us benchmark our facility but most of all it pushes us to strive for an even better product.

Travel safely.

"Rooms and south side would be quieter."
"Great place - don't hesitate."
"Stipulate a Non smoking room and don't get caught like we did."
"Downstairs rooms would be easier if you can't manage stairs, however all under verandahs and downstairs there is a childrens playroom"
"All good two levels so if you can't manage stairs book lower level."
