    Please note -

    OUR MOTELS are world unique, built in part from recycled and natural materials. They have in the past worked hard as a war plane, a navy patrol boat and a carriage from the steam train era. As such they have a slightly lingering aroma from their industrial past, much like any modern vehicle - their scent reflects the materials they are made of.

    Our Cave unit built underground contain natural fiber curtains and some timbers - these too reflect the natural scent of their origins.
