    No hot water in room. No tissues in the room Good service from Hillary. Our overall maintenance not good. Carpet in my room was dirty .staff in general were friendly. Pity to see the chairman of the group boozing it up in the pub.

    Very poor value for money. Booked for 3 nights but only stayed for one night given circumstances... The room we have booked needs renovation, cleaning and better maintenance. Mosquito nets and windows need to be replaced. Bathroom must be renovated.

    I went there several times recently and found the whole experience really good. The owners and staff were really accommodating and nice. I would recommend anyone in the area should visit Purdy's at least once.
