Negative Reviews


Claims some rooms and bathrooms were small

Some rooms were reportedly fairly small, especially at full occupancy. There was also occasional criticism of the small size of certain en suite bathrooms.


Occasional breakfast timing grumbles

Several guests who had early starts in the mornings said they wished the timing of breakfast could have been a bit more flexible as it was only served from 8.30am onwards.


Rural location had shortcomings

The rural location reportedly best suited those with their own transport as it was a little off the beaten track and had limited public transport links. Moreover, some travellers encountered frustrations with poor mobile phone coverage on certain networks in the area.
