We found this place on internet, relatively cheap, based on pictures - clean and nice place. It appeared that THE ONLY advantage of the place was its nearness to Ainsworth hot springs.
The rest was awful: we slept under (looking like 10 years old) web in the bedroom. Spiders, bugs, moskitos. They charge for every breath you take and every move you make:
additional towel - 5 $, daily service - 5 $, cleaning in the kitchen - 5 $, microvawe rented for 5 $, additional child/baby - 6 $. Chairs are broken on the balkony. All dirty, furniture and building 150 years old and barely renovated. Feeling that sheets were not clean - we found hairs in there before got into that. Talking to them was not helpful.
Their rooms located in their yard - everything is thrown around, I cannot describe it, its must see, but must not let this so awful business to die - its not deserve to stay on. During our month travel we visited 12 hotels - this one was worst among all them, i think even worst among all i ever been to.
Strongly recommend to stay as far as you can from this.
