Very unhelpful staff. contact person practically ran away when we came in even though she saw us. Rooms not up to standard. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I just wish I had read the reviews in this page before booking!

However, the guesthouse is also an event center so they were having a party RIGHT nextdoor until late friday night so no one got much sleep.
