We arrived late and left early as was just passing through. The room was warm and quiet, service was super helpful and the room was fairly priced for its condition. Happy customers.

Great little units, heat pumps are very loud, especially when trying to sleep. Little disappointed any their eco policy, ie trying to save on laundry. I hung all my towls up as instructed to dry but they replaced them anyway. Not a biggie.

Loved my stay here. Convenient location to cafes, restaurants, 4 square. Nice easy walk into the town centre and access to the trails right at the end of the road. Lovely, friendly staff. Great property

Not right on the main thoroughfare. However, Just ten minutes walk. We had the individual solid wood chalets. Felt totally at home here. Wish we had booked longer. Would definitely stay here again. Probably getting a bit tied in places. But overall a very good facility. The owner was most pleasant.

Stacey is a fantastic host. All the staff were friendly. The accommodation was very dated. Little has been done since 1970s. No fan in the shower. Uncomfortable small couch. Old floor coverings. However, we would stay again. Its only a few minutes walk from shopping/restaurants/cafes etc.
