Rooms were so cool. 44 degrees outside, no air conditioning in rooms, but you don’t need them. Easy checkin and check out. Great views of the town. Told us where to eat and to get a discount. Kids loved sleeping in a cave.

Hi there...we are approx 1.5km's from the Visitor Information Centre. I am guessing it would take the average person around 20-25 minutes.
