          Room was exceptionally clean but a little bit on the small side. Breakfast on the deck was delightful. Hostess was friendly and knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble, including carrying our bags up to the room

          One of our favourite places we stayed at during our trip. Lovely views from the balcony, very comfortable room and great breakfast. A 15 minute walk took you down to the Waterfront. Try the fish and chips at Freshline Fisheries, wonderful !

          we enjoyed the excellent service, the breakfast and the rooms. Helpful and very friendly owner and staff. Sleeping by open windows you hear the traffic noise a bit. We will come again when travelling at the garden route.
