Covid-19 Coronavirus2021-12-07T15:50:05+10:00

These very challenging times for all of us has brought many changes to life as we knew it.

We are committed to providing the highest standard in accommodation, including of course cleanliness and safety for all.

We provide hand sanitiser at the entry to our premises, and all surfaces are strictly sanitised after every guests departure.

The standard continental buffet experience for breakfast has now been replaced by personal selection with our staff, who will bring your selections to your socially distanced table in the dining room.

We understand that this may feel like you are required to request things that otherwise you may have expected to just be available, but please be assured we have yours (and our) safety in mind in making these changes.
