Firstly, Oreoqueeen is lying. This hotel is clean as a whistle, the grounds are beautiful, the service is top-notch and friendly. Staff is friendly and responsive, and eager to please.
Rooms are more like one-room, fully furnished, apartments. Pots and pans, full table service for four, even a dishwasher with detergent provided.
The lobby is spacious and very tastefully arranged. The breakfast spread is plentiful and generous, and great care is taken with presentation. Coffee is on all day, as well.
There are two options for wireless Internet -- free access, or a higher-bandwidth paid option -- by the hour, the day, or the month.
A well-equipped and modern playground is right outside the door, as well as two small ponds with picnic tables nearby, visited frequently by white terns.
Not only is this the most comfortable room I've ever stayed in -- bar none --, the base has tons of activities at little or no cost, and there is a wealth of interesting sites within a very short drive of the base.
