We stayed in the hotel and found the room (14) very clean and the bed was very comfortable, it has a nice and powerful shower, and nice big tv. The owner was extremely welcoming. Good location, but I would recommend arriving early as parking is a little hard to find, especially at weekends. We would definitely stay again.

There was no side light in room, only one tea bag, towels too small. Snot on the walls. The steps were never cleaned. If you... More

The hotel is located within a short walk to the main drag. The room was a bit on the small side and I kept banging my knee on the corner of the bed. It was very clean though and the beds were made up daily. There is a nice lounge with a section set aside for kids. It had an... More
