Our Gardenview Suite was far enough back from a main road to be quiet and private, despite being right next to their function centre. Warm decor and very comfortable bed meant we felt right at home. There were some minor maintenance issues, couple of light bulbs needed replacing and the toilet flush button was a bit dodgy. Overall the suite...

Really friendly hosts. Rooms are great and one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed at. Stayed in the two bedroom unit which has just been renovated and has a brilliant bathroom. We thoroughly recommend this place.

Thank you for your feedback. We are proud of our high standards, and the renovation you talked about occurred July 2015 - so it is nice to know that 18 months later, it still has the feel of "just renovated".

I felt very comfortable during my single night stay at this place. The rooms are a little on the cozy side, but the shared facilities are excellent. There were plenty of free parking on site as well, so that's a plus for us since we were travelling by car. There are salt, pepper and a variety of mixed spices in...

I arrived unannounced after 10 pm following a long drive. The vacancy sign was still up and I received a warm friendly welcome. I was shown to a one bedroom unit which was beautifully presented and clean. Off street parking was easily accessed dinner and breakfast could be purchased and was as good as I could hope to get anywhere....

We had a room at the lodge, right next to the salt water pool. Which we used several times during our stay. The lodge is lovely and clean, and the owner was friendly and helpful. The kitchen is well supplied, and even things like laundry liquid and shower gel were supplied. A great place to stay.

It suited us well as a large family, wanting separate bedrooms but able to prepare our meals and eat and sit together. Some of the family found the shared bathrooms a challenge. We were happy with our ensuite.

Thank you for your feedback. We have a wide range of accommodation available, from the shared lodge, which it sounds like your family booked, to fully self contained suites and apartments - which may have suited your group better if they found the shared environment challenging.

Very nice room: big bedding room ok for kid's play. The bed is very comfortable and we slept very well there. Bathroom is very clear and well-organized and big enough also.

Excellent location. A relaxing riverside walk into the city. The spa and pool area was well-maintained. The owners/managers are extremely friendly. Always open to a chat. Didn't visit the restaurant but it was very busy on one night of our stay.

“I prefer a soft top bed. It was a bit firm, however my husband had no problem. (call me a softie) I slept on the single bed. The room was enjoyable. There was a tv in the room so we could just have peace and quiet when we needed it.”
