Ron is a very friendly and helpful host. The accommodation is spacious and has everything needed. Great location on a hill means an amazing view over the town too.
We were greeted warmly by Ron and Margaret, had a very welcome cup of tea with them and were shown our room. This was a very clean,spacious and comfortable room at the top of the house with it's own private entrance and a seating area outside. Within the room was a queen size bed (which proved that night to be extremely comfortable) a settee, TV, table and chairs,
fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster plus a
generous supply of food for a continental
breakfast. The bathroom was just across the
hall and had a very good shower.
We would highly recommend a stay here.
Lovely clean, spacious room. Great view of the sunset from balcony. Welcoming and friendly hosts. Would definitely stay again.
Ron greeted us warmly and friendly and offered car accommodation for our classic car. Introduced us to wife Marg and friendly dog, Ted.
Our room had a lovely view over Broken Hill and then accommodation was more than expected. Rons local knowledge was invaluable.
Ron and Margaret made us feel very welcome. They very kindly collected us from the railway station and, when we arrived at their house, we had a cup of tea and a chat. The room was as described with very generous breakfast provisions. We were able to do our washing and come and go as we pleased. The area was great for walking in and we always felt safe. Ron had lots of information about the area that he was always prepared to share with us.
Again Marg and Ron were fantastic. Accommodation and company are second to none.
Ron and Marg are extremely hospitable and very good company. They welcome you into their home and nothing is too much trouble. Very knowledgeable re the local area and the room was great. They go out their way to make your stay enjoyable.
will come back again.
