Mackers Riverbend Guest Review
Average Guest Rating:
out of 5
based on 1
Mackers Riverbend was ideal for us because it was within our price range and it had everything we needed (no unnecessary frills) - lovely clean, crisp bedding and towels; hot water; clean shower in good working order; and everything worked. The place is well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped and everything works.
