This was our 4th stay, but our 1st time in the Verandah suite. It was a perfect stay. The standards of cleanliness, Covid infection prevention precautions, food and service from Sue and Richard were outstanding as ever. The extra special touches provided made our experience completely faultless.
We absolutely love this place and cannot wait to return.
