    Just Okay

    I think that if you are a fan of Fortitude, it would be be a thrill to stay here. However, as I have never watched the show, I rated this guest house based on the quality of my stay. We were in the building beside the main house. It is like a motel in that you can drive the car right up to the door of the room. The room was small and very basic. It was in need of new pillows, linens and a paint job. The sparseness of the room did not make it feel warm and inviting. Based on all of the positive reviews that I had read, my friends and I were disappointed. The evening meal In the dining room was satisfactory.

    Beautiful surroundings. It had a very modern, spacious, bathroom and large flat screen tv. Brekkie was included however we had to leave early. We were told we could get something from cook if we had to leave early but no one was around!

    Upgraded to lovely room

    The lovely young lady a check in upgraded me to a new room that was not above the restaurant, so it would be quieter for me. The room was comfortable and clean with plenty of hot water.

    Nice rooms

    They upgraded us for free without asking. The room was nice but had 2 twin beds. But that was ok.

    It was nice, only problem was steep stairs for us--we are 71 and 72. Shower was also not really hot--only lukewarm. But breakfast was good!
