We had a double room which was very spacious. You have your own bathroom and fridge in the room.
There is free Tea & Coffee at the reception.
The kitchen/dining area was clean and well equipped.
The staff was super friendly and helpful.
It is about 5-10 min walk to the restaurants, bars, shops and the lake.
About 25-30 min walk to the Bungy Side and the Hotsprings (definitely worth going there!).
Absolutely worth staying here. 100% recommended.
