Also known as Crystal House. This is very much a 'hippy' retreat with therapies etc. available. Rooms have no televisions or telephones and are styled somewhat idiosyncratically to go with the 'Crystal' name. We used it as first stop on the North Coast 500 (NC500) road trip. Food was excellent with Mauritian overtones. WiFi a bit hit and miss.
