After hours on the road, this is a great place to relax, drink, and eat. It is clean and has beautifully mowed grounds. The staff is professional and the food decent. It was entertaining watching wedding dancers and listening to their music.

Well kept gardens surround the restaurant and hotel complex beside the main road. Clean toilets. The museum displays local artifacts and the guide is knowledgeable - well worth a visit. Cool and clean inside.
