Property condition


    The bedroom was nice enough. The beds were comfortable, their was enough space for us to move around and the air conditioner did feel wonderful. The bathrooms were the problem. Two shared bathrooms were not enough for the number of guests and at one point there was a line at least three deep. It was like “take a ticket and wait”, which can be ok except for when it starts to feel like if I don’t get it soon a leak may occur. Bathrooms were on the grungy side, too. One had a broken faucet and both had wet (ugh!) towels laid on the floor to absorb spilled water from the shower. I think this situation requires some renovation; there has to be a better way.

    Overnight stay

    The room and beds were comfortable and clean. The bathroom was dated however the shower was awesome. The premises are aged but very well maintained. The access from the road would not suit anyone with a disability due to many steps and ramps. Access from the rear car park was easier. d

      This accommodation is essentially an upmarket backpackers. Saying that however we had booked a bungalow which turned out to be a very dark flat underneath the house next door. It did have two double beds which is hard to get and what we wanted.. and a good would be a very cool place in the hotter months. Ok for a one night stay but 3 nights ...with its tiny TV and shabby lounge in the main room ( the other bedroom had a larger one obviously to cater to people who watch tv in bed). Out the back is a lovely garden but all of the washing seems perpetually on the lines.All a bit dreary. Fran was very helpful in bringing our attention to all the activities that are part of their arts festival.
