The only gripe we had was the room's need aircon and the entertainment for the kids and adults was very poor, otherwise a lovely couple of days.

We arrived at The Nest after a very long road trip and were looking for a peaceful rest; which is exactly what we got. Location is stunning and rooms were nice.

Our stay was wonderful, there is no other way to describe it. The staff were very friendly which you don't get everywhere or anywhere. Excellent. The food is outstanding and I will rate that 10 stars and not 3. I would advise anyone to stay there who wants to rest and eat good food. Thank you very very much for the good service we received.
