We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again. The staff were lovely and the food and accommodation fantastic!


I can't rave enough about this place. From the time we arrived tot he time we left - i was impressed. Staff could not have been better, every single one of them whether cleaning or serving all took the time out to say hello, rooms are very clean, food is fantastic. Information is outstanding. I will be recommending here to all my friends and family.


A great base for fishing the wonderful rivers and lakes in the area. Good food and great staff. Highly recommended
