Good location,very close to the lake just few minutes walk away. We'll appointed rooms and nice breakfast spread. Only thing not happy is that they charge for wifi access unlike most other hotels. That too its 10 dollars for 24 hours.

Is there a washing machine/ dryer at hotel? Thankyou
There absolutely is. $4 per wash and $4 per dry using two dollar coins only which you can get from reception at any time. Washing powder is dispensed automatically in the machines so no need to buy your own. Each cycle takes 30-40 minutes. Sorry for the late reply.
