The hosts were convivial and welcoming. The room was gloriously comfortable and quiet, just what I needed after a busy week. The breakfast was full and hearty, which included great conversation. Will be back!

I stayed with John and Jane in February 2016 and it is a home away from home. Delicious breakfast to start your day and big comfortable bed to rest after a day sightseeing or exploring the national parks.

We only spent one night at the Loft in Acacia Bay but were very impressed with our room, the cleanliness and the delicious full breakfast Jane prepared for us the next morning. We had cereal, toast, eggs, jams, and rolls--Jane used to be a caterer I believe she said--and it showed. We only had a brief visit with John but... More

we stayed in the shakespeare room in february. the room is large and comfortable with easy chairs and a table. the tea/coffee making is on the landing which whilst not a problem does mean that for the morning cuppa you need to properly attired and not rattle the cups too much.

“we had the largest of the three rooms, it had a queen bed and a large sofa at one end of the room where we were able to sit and read quietly after a long drive, without feeling that we needed to go downstairs. Tea making facilities if we wanted them were on the landing outside our room, complete with home baking available. A lovely stay.”
