Like many of the others we had a very pleasant stay in a very comfortable room, brightly decorated and well thought out with quality furnishings.
On arrival there was no one around as we were after the 16.00 check in time, however there was an envelope with our name on it which gave the details of how to check in, simple. After a good nights sleep we met out host Jill, helpful and chatty, she helped us refine our travel plans and we left after a serious breakfast, the type that you won't be needing to think about lunch !
After taking Jill's advice we were fortunate enough to see penguins and Wallabies on our walks.
Much later I discovered that I had left something behind, Jill had already tried to contact us and kindly forwarded it to our next hotel. Thanks Jill much appreciated.
