Reviews

“Spacious, clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff and owner. Amazing breakfast with generous portions made with love. Great view from the deck and the Jacuzzi was a highlight. Will definitely recommend this establishment.” Elism0, TripAdvisor

“From arrival to departure the hospitality and facilities were second to none. We had a big group that booked out most rooms at the roundhouse, their self-catering guest houses which were all well equipped and serviced. The facilities were great and very clean. No request was too small and they went out of their way to accommodate our every need. The owners are wonderful and the staff second to none. A 5-star experience for us. Thank you!” Pania H, TripAdvisor
