This is certainly a place to stay if you want off the beaten track. Everything seemed rather tired and in need of some investment to bring it up to 21st century standards. The rooms was nice and clean but just needed a coat of paint maybe. The food was pretty average and very much take it or leave it,which is a problem as there is nowhere else close by. The staff were very good and helpful unlike the management team who really seemed totaly uninterested in their guests or at least us. The WiFi was terrible and as we had to pay for it it was very poor. The tour to the waterfall was Ok . All in all pretty average and we certainly won't be going back.
