We loved the garden and the comfy lounge. Blinds in our room broken and so lights from garden made out room very bright at night.

Nice place to take a rest during a road trip! It's about 10 minutes walk to the town's center and the BREAKFAST is included which is a really good point! I recommend that backpackers for your quick rest!

We would have loved to had our own bathroom or at least a toilet and basin. It was quite an unusual experience to use the bathrombosis and had a stranger walking in.
