Great location, lovely owners, but Rata room I stayed in is very small indeed and it was awkward in lots of ways.

A very nice and comfortable stay. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. The property is interesting; rooms have a wonderful view over the river. Only slight downside is that one needs to drive if you want to go out for dinner.

What an unexpected pleasure!

What a wonderful and charming place! Lovely wooden cottages with high ceilings set up in the hills overlooking the township of Thames afforded spectacular views from the large picture windows and balcony. The hosts, Alby and Rachel, are delightful. Nothing is too much trouble. The nightcap liqueur amd home-made cookies to welcome guests were a real treat. Loved the spa. Handy to town and the attractions of Thames. Loved the place and wished I could have stayed longer.
