Thanks Sonja for a lovely quiet stay. All the amenities you provided were wonderful. The bathroom is small, but perfectly functional, great TV reception. It is very pleasant stroll to the bowls club for great feed. A very quiet and safe town to walk around in.

The B&B is in a nice location towards the edge of town. The room was very clean and spacious with easy access to the car parking. There was a kitchenette with a good sized fridge. Sonja was very welcoming and made our stay very pleasant. We would definitely stay here again

This B&B was clean & cosy. Sonja was a great host, not intrusive but thoughtful & provided us with good fresh breakfast each morning. The B&B is in a quiet location, but within easy walking distance to restaurants in the centre of the town. We had a small kitchenette which proved very convenient for supplies. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Really enjoyed our stay at Sonja’s. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with everything you need. Ezra pillows, towels and blankets. Good shower. Great continental breakfast with good quality cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice, toast, coffee and tea. Good location just on the outskirts of town. Great value for money.

We stayed in the Casbah out behind the main house. Enjoyed our stay with a kitchen, living area and bedroom. The Casbah included a washer and dryer if needed. The BBQ area near by was good with cutlery and dishes ready for use. Everything was clean and in working order. The bathroom (shower) was different and added to the quirkiness of the place. There is a deck on the top of the main house which overlooks a opal mining area. Wonderful star gazing at night along with beautiful sunsets!
