We stayed here at the beginning of our Jan 2013 East Cape tour,
It is basically a backpackers hotel.
And if you were one of these, you couldn't fault it.
As we are getting on in years we chose a queen room ensuite.
For $75 it was a steal.
No TV, but there was one in the lounge, two doors down,
with a balcony overlooking the main street below.
No kettle, or fridge,or toaster, but there was all of these,
in the backpackers kitchen next door.
For dinner there was two well priced restaurants downstairs.
With a little planning for breakfast, you can get dinner bed and breakfast
for the price of a room in a motel.
And the people are friendly as well.
