Room was very nice, and clean and spacious. We enjoyed two nights stay at PH Hunters Rest, and will truly recommend this Hotel to anyone travelling to this Area. They have friendly staff, and no one hesitates to assist with anything. Well done guys for doing great work. We will come visit soon.

What a wonderful little gem. Only had 24 hrs to recharge our batteries. It was lovely; The staff was helpful and engaging, the food was delicious- my mom said " best trout she's ever tasted". The only bad thing was the time went by too quickly!
