Enjoy our comfortable, warm and very quiet units. We have 16 rooms with something to suit all budgets. There is a mix of Standard or Deluxe 1 bedroom units and Studios. We also have a large spacious 2 bedroom More unit which can cater for a max of 5-6 guests. Some Deluxe Units are upstairs and one of the Deluxe Studios has a spa bath. Less
