              I do not like complaining but this place is barely suitable as a place to stay. You stay right next to the farm workers that play music loud and smoke weed all night long, almost everything is broken or breaking. Even the floor isn't even level! Dirt and farm rubbish is lying everywhere!I lived in a tent for 2 years as a game ranger and I would've taken that anyday over this.

              A great little stop over spot. away from the middle of town, quiet and relaxing surrounds.for bed cottage for just two of us allowed us to spread out and enjoy the space. fairly well equipped kitchen and rooms.Could have had complimentary coffee or tea on offer and soap in the bathroom or kitchen.Very happy nonetheless.
