"We all enjoyed staying at Top House over the recent long weekend. As we had visitors from the UK, I was after a place that gave an idea of the architecture of an era. The house was very comfortable and had all that we needed. Very nice touch of having the bottle of wine, which was thoroughly enjoyed.
House has a lovely aspect and great views and its close enough to down town to walk down and catch a bus back up.
I'd recommend the place warmly.
