The tranquil setting was beautiful The room was an OH&S disaster that DID happen The breakfast was a mini disaster. Minimal attention, the food was not prepared as ordered. There was no explanation as to the process of whether you ordered, went to the buffet or not. The coffee when eventually ordered came at the end of breakfast.

We loved staying here. ERemo has a good menu and the food was well prepared and very tasty. The bedrooms are well appointed and are extremely comfortable and private. We would stay again.
