Older style unit with plenty of room and good comfort. Well heated and comfortable bed. Would like to see the ageing front sliding door upgraded and the screen door lockable.

It really met our need for a short stay. It was comfortable, had access to laundry facilities at a reasonable cost.

Fantastic place to stay! Spacious and lots of facilities including a well equipped little general store. Very friendly helpful staff and neat manicured gardens. The rooms were very comfortable and well equipped. Very affordable and great for families. Thoroughly recommended!
