Had easy check in and it was simply a quick 10 min walk into town for a choice of restaurants and food options.
Very impressed with Oxley’s food and service.
Nikki is such a wonderful hostess.
The place was quiet (what we need!) and we had everything we need in our little room with ensuite. There’sa small gym, media room, TV room plus spacious area to eat and a big kitchen. Everything is well laid out. Everything was clean!
Great start to our hiking trip!
