2,5 Mediocre
Cons: The owners/receptionist were rude towards my group of friends. The old lady did assault my friend on the night I stayed and she barged into my room without even knocking and walked in. Common courtesy dictates a knock on the door. I did book a BBQ on the night and had a confirmation email 3 weeks before but still, the old lady did refuse us to use it but after a lot of arguiung, she did finally agree. During my confirmation there was no time stated as I have traveled a lot, I am aware the cutoff time is at 22:00, at 21:45 she came and took the gas away from BBQ and let my food stay there. She was being racist towards my group of friends. The stay at this property was very stressful as she threatened to call police on us.
