We were very thankfully (as a couple of travelling mates) that at last minute (well a couple of days before) this place accommodated us on Valentines Day for one night.
on arrival we were greeted by the very nice man who had not only upgraded us to the two bedroom 'apartment'....... he also was quite upfront that breakfast would be cut short due to his yoga class......... now this is fine in a one off situation but as it has been mentioned several times in previous reviews, it is obviously more than a common occurrence and therefore should be mentioned in its website/ advertisements.
The room was old & on the verge of musty but clean.
The beds were adequate but as they knew that we were 2 friends travelling separately, singlebeds in the second room could of been pushed together in anticipation of our arrival.
Shower was very poor & grime was evident.
It was a 15 minute walk from town across fields & dont let anyone tell you different.
I missed breakfast because i wanted a good nights sleep so cant comment on that.
I Fully support the independent 'alternative' accommodation but i did not pay $160 YES ONE HUNDERED AND SIXTY DOLLARS to be treated like i was imposing on their life.
This wasnt a hovel but i would not recommend this tired bit of Byron to anyone - shame
That is how i felt after leaving & still do 2 months later- dont do it people!
