  • Good place for a retreat
    10 July 2017

    Place very tranquil for a break . We had a nice quiet weekend. What I did not like we slept on single beds, for a couple it's a no. No bedside mat. No mirror in the bathroom. A turn off its when we were about to leave and told we owing the balance. I paid all the money through Safari, I don't know how the system works apparently it was not showing. They had to phone the owner to sort this out

  • Stunning place!!
