Just a couple of small things. They advertise robes and hair rings and there were neither in the room. There was no way of controlling the temperature from in our room. Otherwise it was a lovely handy place to stay. The breakfast was very good

Hi & thanks for your comments. Apologies that we didn't get bathrobes into the room - had a someone not follow instructions & tie up our laundry for an excessive amount of time, causing delays. Not sure what you mean by "Hair Rings". Do you mind emailing us and clarifying? All the best and thank you for staying with us.

Lovely hosts - great place to stay close to CBD

Why would you stay in a boring motel unit when you could have a night here in this lovely house with these great hosts.

Lovely villa close to town.

Stayed in 'The Loft' which was their best room with views, a balcony and total privacy. Lovely and secluded yet close to town. Friendly hosts and would stay again anytime!
