Everything was excellent. Owners made us feel very welcome. Beautiful food and views. Very clean. The thing that would top it off in winter would be an outdoor spa.

A beautiful setting to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Amazing views from the room & dining area. Rob & Marina were excellent hosts & provided some extra special touches. Very considerate with dietary requirements. I loved my specially cooked GF muffins. Dinner was lovely but a choice of mains would be nice. Breakfast was superb. The complimentary mini bar was a nice addition. I would have loved a swim in the pool but it was a little chilly. Perhaps there could be a possibility of heating the pool in the future. Overall a lovely place for a getaway.
