We were surprised at how far out of town we had to drive to find this place. We knew the town would probably be quiet as we were out of season, so instead of staying two nights we had knocked it down to one. the guest house its self is nicely done with a large dining and chilling area with a honesty bar. The room we had was mountain monkey which was done out with various monkey accessories, upholstery etc. I can only guess the rest of the rooms have similar themes. The bathroom was large with wet room style shower. The down side was it was a bit tired in places and the view was mostly of the wall and roof of next door. We decided to cancel the restaurant booking as we were hungry and headed into town immediately. We had an early start the following morning so opted out of breakfast, although the owner did offer to put some food together to take with us. From what we could make out there was one other couple staying there but other than that the place was lifeless. So although there was nothing particularly wrong with this place, it just didn't feel quite right either, and I can't quite put my finger on it.
