GUEST REVIEWS FOR MOONRIVER MOUNTAIN RETREAT

Service: Excellent

Friendliness: Excellent

Cleanliness:  Excellent

Facilities: Excellent

Overall:  Excellent

Just 3 things to comment on:

Hot water in the end cottage a bit erratic – possible blockage with gas?

Single bed in the middle cottage is collapsing – looks like being held up with bricks

Circuit breaker in kitchen needs attention and a bit dangerous as not screwed in properly and I bumped it by mistake and the covering metal board fell down. Should have a proper cover on.

Other than that it was awesome and we loved the setting, tranqility, amenities and so well stocked up, and will be back.

Thanks a mil
