We arrived in a quiet time, after hours. A lovely lady was waiting for us. She proudly took us to our room. The room was spacious and had all the modern amenities needed. The bedding was of the best quality and the breakfast was delicious. Staff were friendly.

We booked the kingfisher room because we traveled with our baby. Beautiful spaces room with a mountain and pool view and enough space for a baby cot. A little kitchenette and pretty bathroom make this room perfect for a family stay. Nice, quiet area, breakfast is fresh and made with love and from welcome to check out very friendly staff. Definitely our favorite in the area!

The booking processes was so friendly and accommodating. Amazing, friendly reception welcome. We were a MTB cycle touring group and this guesthouse suited us perfectly. The rooms were so beautiful. The service was exceptional - just brilliant! The attention to detail is really amazing - folded toilet paper, bodem coffee. The pool area is lovely.
