Reasonable breakfast - included in the price
Some rooms face the road, there is little noise in the morning
The breakfast was good.
The showers on the ground level where we were staying did not have hot water for the entire duration of our stay (3 days). When we brought it to the attention of the staff they said they would attend to it but they never did.
Bring ear plugs - the private rooms are dotted around the pool area, which is populated with students who like to drink alcohol (and smoke continuously) and make noise until very late. Suggest the proprietors make a dedicated smoking/drinking area away from the pool as it otherwise becomes quite impossible to escape from that antisocial behaviour. Obviously that’s a major draw card if you’re a student at the end of an overland trip who enjoys drinking and smoking into the early hours.
Nice building, clean facilities
It was a bit noisy in the rooms and the Wifi sucked
The guest lodge which I eventually moved into. The owner was amazing as well as the lovely day Staff. They were clearly not aware of what happens AFTERHOURS . Great spot for youngsters that like to party, do drugs and smoke pot to their delight. I don’t but felt permanently high from everyone else’s fumes day and night. (Giggle)
I booked a private room. Absolute nightmare. Guests partying on a Sunday night until 12:30. Woman passed out in bathroom, Vomiting, big fat lady almost fell of balcony, drug lords and many non guests from outside visiting the premises to “ party. A woman and guy right outside my door making “ monster like” noises was really scary. The private rooms are not private. You are right next to the bar, pool, kitchen that closes after 12 at night and staff super noisy at 6 am. But, the above is just me. If you are happy to party through the night and sleep during the day you found a great spot!
