We loved that the property was separate from the main house and that it had all the amenities we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen had everything to be self sufficient. It was very clean and tidy.

Clean, comfortable and convenient to so much

Pros: Location and only minutes to the ferry terminal.
Location: Walking track along the river to the lighthouse and into the city centre.
Owners went out of their way to ensure our short stay was comfortable and the accommodation was easy walking distance to the lighthouse and restaurants. We left our small backpack in our room and the owners brought it to the ferry terminal at 7am, I rang them at 6.30am. No hesitation in helping us out. Highly recommend

Exellent place right on the river bank, not the most luxurious hotel but very cosy and carefully looked after, beautiful garden, every thing was clean as soon as you enter the driveway gate. Lovely hosts Julianne & Rex. Loved their beautiful dogs too.
