Very warm hospitality with down to earth hosts Jan and Brian. Swimming Pool was very relaxing. Most important thing for me was the high level of cleanliness. I had the Kadek Suite which was spacous and nicely furnished in a tropical Bali style. Location was close to facilities for dining out.

Room was clean...

The hosts Brian & Jan are wonderful. They were so friendly and helpful. The location is quiet with a wonderful outdoor setting on the verandah. There is your own fridge, microwave, sink and utensils. The pool and BBQ were great.

Having only stayed in a B&B once before and not enjoyed it as I felt as if I was staying in someone elses house and eating at their dinner table as if one of the family. I like the privacy of being able to choose how much time I wish to spend interacting with the hosts. I really enjoyed this...

We were looking for accommodation close to family and by chance came across the Sunset Retreat. Having never stayed at a B&B before we were a little hesitant however the experience was brilliant. Simple, excellent (& well priced) accommodation and we're more than happy to recommend them. We will use them again ourselves.

Management of Palmerston Sunset Retreat was of the understanding your booking was for 4 nights. We were also happy to accommodate your earlier check in at no additional cost. A 50% deposit was taken ( ie 2 Nights accommodation ) and a confirmation emailed sent which is normal booking practice by our Property. 4 nights payment was not transacted. Unfortunately...
