Peace and Quiet

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 08 Apr 2019
First off its perfectly located in a great little town and is very easy to find.

The room was beautiful and the bath was perfect. The relaxed feel of the inn was so inviting and time of day slips away. This is the place to spend a few days of you need to forget life and just be.

I have slept on many beds and it usually takes a few nights to settle in but at Goblins it was a great sleep from day one.

Communication is a little slow but worth the wait.
Date of stay: March 2019
Room Tip: Ask for the room with Koi fish and ball claw bath.

    My stay at Goblin’s Inn was very pleasant - everything you need for an overnight stay at a very reasonable price.Friendly and helpful staff in this tranquil town.VERY safe area and close to the sea.More than enough plugs (no need to bring an adapter) as well as a microwave and fridge.Coffee,cremora and sugar is provided,but if you like tea and milk - bring those along. The office is just about 3 or 4 houses up the street.

    I wanted to get away from it all and chill and Goblin's Creek was exactly what I needed. Having a hot bath felt so decadent and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I might have converted the owners to geocaching - hope to find a cache here the next time I am in the area! :)

    Goblins inn is a great getaway. Cosy rooms with all the necessities. It has a beautiful view over Stompneus bay. We were welcomed with a smile. Goblins inn will stay on my 'places-to-visit' list. Great place indeed.

    The hosts are friendly, the rooms appropriately furnished except for a kettle. There is no breakfast (except for cereals and milk, which was not available every morning) but guests are allowed to use the kitchen facilities. The cleaning staff are not doing a good job. There should be regular supervision from the hosts. I stayed for 5 nights and expected that the bathroom would be cleaned properly every day which was not the case. Windows were dirty. The biggest problem however are the myriad of mosquitos due to the open ponds on the premises. There are no mosquito nets and no gauze in front of windows/doors. Hence I had to sleep with closed windows and doors every night which was terrible. The hosts also have a rehabilitation centre for injured animals. This is applaudable and for this reason alone one should support them. Although some of the animals roam freely, the premises are kept clean and tidy. I liked the place if it was not for the mosquitos ....... The cats are friendly and Highway spent two nights on my bed. Being an animal lover I really enjoyed this part of the stay.
