Hills & Dales is NOT suitable for

    • People who are not animal friendly.  We have three resident Jack Russells and three cats, one of which is a black cat.
    • Corporate people who want a Monte Casino Hotel type experience!  We are NOT a hotel and do not have a bar or a restaurant!
    • People who are terrified of spiders and insects.  We are in the country and experience all these things as well as the odd snake.  Our rooms are clean and neat but we cannot prevent the odd insect from coming inside through the window!
    • wheelchair guests as too many steps, hills and dales.  Some of our units do have ramps and safety bars in the showers but that is all.
    • people who do not like the Swallows and Sparrows nesting in the passageways or a bit of peeling paint.  We have recently repainted so are looking pretty smart but it is an ongoing process of maintenance projects!
    • drinking, partying and playing loud music in the accommodation units.  We want peace and quiet in the accommodation units where we may have other guests nearby that need to be considered.  We have pool areas where you can go to and play music softly and get together.
    • people who are looking for a children’s amusement park.
    • people who want pub or restaurant facilities with all the bells and whistles!
    • travellers who do not want to travel on 600 metres of dirt road.
