Veronica (Bonnie) Laundy and Arthur Laundy Snr, built the Twin Willows Hotel together and opened the doors on 14th December 1964.

They lived on site and worked the hotel side by side, with Bonnie behind the bar for long hours, looking after the motel and cooking the guests breakfast each morning.

She was a Legend!

The hotel was a great success thanks to their hard work and determination. However, in 1969 her beloved husband, Arthur was tragically killed in a light aircraft accident along with three staff members.

Bonnie passed away at the grand age of 97 in 2012 leaving an indelible mark on all who knew her. She will always be much loved and missed by all who crossed her path.
