    It is easy to get used to the different 'light'. You stand a great chance of seeing the lights because of the time of year and the longer dark night. Good luck, you will be well looked after.

    We ran a tab, and settled up in cash at the end of the stay, mainly because there few other places to spend cash. Card payments are accepted too though.
