This is a great place in town! Staff was exceedingly friendly, the place was clean, the food was tasty! We also booked a river cruise with reception, which was lovely. This is definitely a place to go back to!

I spent a few nights here before I joined up with a camping trip. The staff was friendly and helpful and was always ready to help when needed. My only critique is that no late check out is available...even when rooms were vacant.

Are there washing machines available for clothing there?
Not sure - Lodge offered laundry service - free! If you put out what you want washed in the morning - would be washed by next day!

Shearwater Explorers Village is a lovely hotel and grounds and I felt very safe there. There was a safe in our room. Take cash in small bills since you won't get change as there is a shortage of cash and the banks do not have any. I don't know about bus schedules, but the situation changes, so perhaps calling the hotel before you go would be helpful. The hotel is close to the artisan markets and you can buy beautiful handmade items very reasonably.

Yes. Easy walk. Most of the shops & restaurants are also within an easy walk. Just be prepared to be hassled by people selling carvings etc. Just stand firm or say no or that you have already bought some. Only negative thing about the whole trip.
