Me my husband and our son, his wife and my grandson spent one night in the Family Unit. it was very reasonably priced. I would not recommend it for longer if you are 4 grownups as only the main bedroom is private with a door. Perhaps seperate rooms for a longer stay. It's a beautiful place and we loved the... More

After closing time I called around a few places, this place was the only one who answered. They were friendly, helpful, professional etc. The room was decorated in a monochromatic style, I loved the pictures and feel of the room. Also the free parking was a nice addition. The room was better than most for which I have been charged... More

Stayed here for one night on our trip to Parys. Grounds are really well maintained and accommodation felt very private. Very nice kitchen, ideal for self catering if you plan to stay for longer. Most of the town's amenities are within walking distance. Only minor complaint would be that the place really stank of air freshener, there was a deobloc... More

We visited Parys for two nights in late April 2013 and stayed at Green Gables. The property has a number of accomodation options. We stayed in a family cottage. The cottage was nicely decorated, spotless and well equiped with all you could need for a stay in the kitchen. The gardens are beautifully kept and there is lots of space... More

We spent the weekend as a special birthday weekend away - perfect choice. Loved the proximity to town for some great gift and goodie shopping, and also within walking distance of some great eateries.

This is an ideal option if you are looking for overnight accommodation in Parys. The rooms are modern and spotlessly clean. The white linen and towels are always crisp and clean! The swimming pool is great for relaxing and catching a dip in summer. The rooms are heated on arrival in winter which is impressive. All in all a good,... More

The name may be a bit misleading, rather than a real country estate, this is a guest house in a rural town. It does have a lovely large garden and pool. As opposed to the "modern" rooms mentioned in a previous review, our rooms and furniture probably dates from the 1950's. However, the rooms and furniture alike were in immaculate... More

“Room #4 looked great with its own alcove, nearer the pool, but may be a little close to conference centre (so check if a conference first). The double storey near the big garden looked absolutely wonderful too Room #2 was our room, and was not really surrounded by any other rooms or people”
