As always, it is a great place to stay. Friendly people, great food, excellent value for money. Clean room and linen. Excellent location. Close to the Crocodile bridge gate. Enjoyed our short break away.

Can get much better quality accommodation for the same price. Old dark and worn, needs a clean up. Not well equipped with the basics expected from self catering. Everything looks second hand and a mix and match. Not okay at price point.
