Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Very friendly staff and nice clean accommodation. Beautiful view, and modern fixtures. Spa was nice and big. Will definitely look to visit again sometime. Only thing wrong was the coffee plunger gauze was well worn and fell apart during use which, while repairable by screwing the gauze back in, wasted the one coffee packet provided with the room.
