I stayed at Sportman's for two weeks. Excellent budget accomodation and friendly and helpful proprietors. I would highly recoommend Sportsman's as a place to stay. It is in easy walking distance to the town and next to the museum

Bob and Emily go out of their way to help guests. Emily even took up running so I would have a companion on my morning run. Service is great, the hotel is one of the cheapest in town, and the excellent Emily's Takeaway Cafe is attached and open 24/7. This hotel is only a few years old and is kept very clean, beds are very comfortable with really nice sheets and they do your laundry for free. Being just a short staircase away from the main street means it is close to everything but still quiet.

I Have to Say that Bob,Emily and Staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome.nothing is too hard and they'll go out of there way to Help you any way they can.They have expert local knowledge.
The Food is excellent (pat on the back to the cooks) and the Staff provide an excellent service.
The location is very good with easy excess to rental cars(200m down the road)The local bus stop is right out front and shops and the main town are a short walk away.
I would recommend to all travellers.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sportsmens Hotel. Great service and surrounded by friendly staff. The room was large and spacious and surrounded by beautiful gardens with a 24/7 cafe. Bob and Emily were always so accomodating and made sure that everything was running smoothly. I will definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone that wishes to visit Vila.
