Guest Reviews

It was a perfect location – good value and fantastic facilities staff friendly and helpful. 

So hospitable and friendly could not do enough to help – beautiful location – and amazing value for  money…


First moment of the welcoming say a lot, and that is how we knew we would instantly  have a pleasant stay. Great location, even if main road noise travels all the way tot he units.

Good enough views, sufficiently equipped rooms (here again in relation to price). Great activity range, and a possible base to access Clarens.
