Café Bunkroom

It may not be as secluded as The Whitehouse, but has its own charm and advantages – espresso coffee and the café buzz are on your doorstep. With a door to the verandah it’s easy to get out to the garden or stream, but you can always get back inside for a cool drink in summer or to curl up on a sofa by the fire in winter.

The bedroom has a single bed and a double/single bunk bed. Showers and toilets are a short walk away along the verandah.

Rates: $25 to $30 per person, per night.

Evening and breakfast meals by arrangement.


The Hut

The Hut is in the Café carpark and can be set up with a double or two single beds. The Hut offers the advantages of being close to the café, but a little more private.

Rate: $25-$30

Other beds can be made available, so if you have a large group please talk to us about the options.
