The on-site restaurant Ernie is great and Philip was very attentive to the hangry children’s needs throughout the night. Thank you. We thought the pool was a little small for the size of the guesthouse, but overall was a great stay.

Tranquil stay
Check in - 9/10 Easy and accomodating They went out of their way and left us a hand written note with champagne. It was thoughtful. Hotel Room : 7/10 I loved the small touches mentioned above and the room decor was pretty and clean, however our room did have a small issue with a smell coming from the drain that wasn’t the greatest, but there is so much that made up for that. The view was beautiful from room #4. The tv selection was sad and netflix would have made it better. I would also have loved to see a Nespresso machine, they only had some hipster drip coffee sachets. Leif products are beautiful we have them at home so I was pleased to see them in the property. The outside stools were relaxing and quiet to listen to nature and enjoy a beautiful view over the river. Ammenities: 8/10 Pool and spa was stunning and sparkling. Tennis was fun! Indoor games need to be replaced, puzzle had missing pieces. Dinner/Breakfast: 5/10 I give it a lower rating because we waited an hour for our food due to a kitchen mishap. They lost our docket and it left mu husband hangry as we had waited to enjoy a feast. Dinner was good they gave us a complimentary mussel plate ( my husband does not eat any mussels) so I was stuck with the plate it was lovely but I think the wait kind of killed the food and ambience for us. Breakfast was really good and I had the corn frittata and salmon. It was definitely a must have. Check Out- 9/10 it was fast and sufficient front reception was helpful.
