          What a great staff! Also nice rooms. A bit of a walk from the town centre though but walking is good for you or 10 dollars in a taxi if you prefer. Very helpful people! Nice pool area but didn't use it. Thank you!

          Lovely helpful staff, brilliant pool bbq area and good location. Room was good, remodelled bathroom. Not the kind of room you would hang out in all day but great to come home to after a day exploring.
