A comfortable guest house in Florida Road that was clean and adequate.
I dont think it would rate "Very Good" but feel ungenerous in not rating it as such. Nothing was poor about it but then again nothing was great. I stayed here because the price was good.
The room was functional and the aircon worked well.
Breakfast was good.
The pool was clean and welcome in the December heat.
The worst (or best) element to the hotel is the location. Florida Road turns into a tacky party venue at night. The din from the locals goes on until dawn during the holiday season and at weekends.
