I wish I was able to invest in this place. The superb surroundings and the more than friendly host.gave us a glimps of the area that got all the reccommendations in the past. Arriving in the dim of light at 6 pm the old man told us that none of the rooms was prepared. The high price was - according to him - low, see our other reports to show that this aint true. Luckily he offered us a room -used by a long stay guest and realy his friendlyness and help upgrades the total count for CVK. The bandas are not in use anymore, the rooms are dusty and full of bat [--], the place is in a condition of 20 years without looking after. The breakfast was simple but good. Much overprized. Quiet place fabulous for bird spotters
