Firstly, let me clarify, I'm a very friendly easygoing individual who is quite happy at backpackers on my own budget, so expected something decent from what my work budget could provide. Here is an overview of the three rooms to give you a good idea of this place:
1. Double room main house: Nice size, pretty decor, very hard bed, seemed clean but smelt like sewage - found an 'unflushable' in toilet so I requested to be moved
2. Double room annex: Nice size, clean, ensuite smells like sewage and the room therefore too. Walls paper thin so neighbour who snores and coughs is disturbing.
3. Single room main house: Room so small there is only 60cmx60cm floor space which leaves no room for both suitcase and walking.
Positives: Rooms are clean, sheets are clean, good location for walking to town, ensuites all relatively new, good room service clean between nights, free parking (3 places available for many guests though)
Negatives: Duvets smell, ensuites smell, very intermittent internet connection, credit card details left in public view, water only works if no one else using in building at same time (shower at night if you can), manager can be very rude initially but if you keep being polite and nice she's eventually nice back (does take a bit of work though), no day storage of bags, no breakfast, no cancellation policy is a very long 72 hours.
