Accommodation with a Long and Rich History
We are a family run place and business began in 1979 with the unit accommodation, while other related ventures followed in the later years. These included: newspapers, cultural centre, squash courts, bars, restaurant, nightclub and the fale accommodation was completed in the early 1990's.
