            The room was fine except for the road noise (the unit we stayed in was closest to the road). The woman we spoke to initially about this was fine, but the man we spoke to consequently about the noise was abrupt and not friendly and did not want to assist us with regards to this issue.

            A pleasant relaxing stay in superb surroundings. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My only improvement to suggest is that the Information booklet includes a map so that places of interest and perhaps dairies and petrol stations can be easily accessed
