Stayed for 2 nights earlier this month. Great place and very well maintained considering the décor was last renovated 6-7 years ago. The whole place is very cosy; accommodation area, wooden staircase design, dining area and especially the garden/pathway outside the dining area. Greg is a great guy who was helping with my numerous Q & A the past months...
