An excellent stay

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Feb 2021via mobile
Located 3km from Kurow, we overnighted here in this 1860 historic pub (now a B&B) while on the Alps 2 Ocean cycle trail. We stayed in the self-contained studio at the back of the house which was very comfortable. Great hosts, fantastic meals - a stay that enriched our trip.

    John and Linda welcomed us as we rode in, gave us a guided tour of the yard and all the animals. Also a tour and information on the history of this beautiful old house. We felt at home immediately. Accommodation clean and comfortable.

    Room tip: All rooms homely and comfortable

    We were warmly welcomed by both Lynda and JOHN on arrival making us feel very welcome. Accomodation is clean and set well for its era which made its charm. Food was fresh and the hosts JOHN and Lynda were attentive and couldn’t do enough. The children loved the farm animals and there friendly dogs. All in all would definitely go back and would recommend to friends.
