Place was great. After battling to escape the airport and all the guides hassling me this was a real pleasure to get to. Food was great and the beer was cold. The guys that run the were super helpful.

Stayed here for a couple of nights wich dragged out to a week with motorbike repairs. But couldn't have been happier best food (make sure you try the pork chops). Clean rooms, hot shower, helpful and friendly staff. Best of all cold beer!
