5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2009

I went with an extended family totalling 20 of us. There's 4 elderlys, 4 children, and we thought we found an excellent accomodation of the lot of us. We booked 5 rooms, and the staff tried their best to allocate rooms nxt to each other. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean, though the tv channels are limited and tv is spolit. The checkin & bookout is simple, quick and done in a flash. The incredibly low cost even came with a simple, filling breakfast. A no-nonsense choice for us. Will definitely stay there again!
