For the price this place is excellent don't expect anything and you will be pleasantly surprised. Small rooms with free air con and tv and ok beds. I would say this place is ideal for a short break of 3-5 nights any more and you may feel a little disheartened. Grounds are lovely with a nice bar area. Pool area...
