What a great place to stay! Lovely host, comfortable beds and spotlessly clean chalet with everything we needed. The chalets are separate, so it was very quiet and private too. The children's play area with swing and trampoline was an added bonus.

We stayed here for 2 nights over Anzac. Clean tidy and spacious. Couldn't fault it. We were 3 adults and 3 children. Small Playground for kids on site. Domain with larger playground and sports field just over the street. The hosts of the chalets were very friendly and polite. Id stay here again no question.

Great stay at the Chalets very clean and comfortable bed. Water pressure in the shower was a disappointment after 12 hours Travel and the cigarette smoke from the lovely man in reception was sickening. Other than that great stay and would definitely come back!!

These chalets are absolutely gorgeous! Very clean, quiet and very roomy after spending a few nights in motels. A ten minute walk from the town centre. Stunning views of the mountains and very friendly owners

Our second time here and the absolutely lovely manager reserved us our same room... it's a gorgeous place... so comfy and cosy and just a short walk to town... we stayed here as we attended a wedding at The Heritage Hotel... this place half the price and lovely.. much more private... water pressure is a bit ordinary... but who cares......

Tidy chalet, perched on a hill overlooking the golf course with beautiful views of the mountains. Stayed here with 2 young kids & the two separate rooms in the chalet meant everyone had a peaceful night! This motel has everything you need for your visit, very comfortable & easy access to the village. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Thank Peter C
