    Stayed here overnight with my partner and mother of 82. Charming quaint place, nicely decorated and lovely lovely comfortable beds! The manager even gave my mum a glass of Chardonnay! Perfect place for that overnight sleepover on your way along the coast.

    We stayed here for 1 night and the room was perfect. So close to a variety of beaches and a small town. They recommended a cafe down the road which was delicious! Worth a stop here if your passing through !
