We stayed here after seeing photos online; it looked really nice. The room was very small, though quite well appointed. The floors had not been vacuumed before we arrived (the rug had bits all over it) and it was freezing cold. It didn't look anything like the pictures online; everything looked half-finished. The pillows were the most uncomfortable things we'd ever slept on, and the bed had terrible roll-together. Because of the layout, it was quite noisy overnight with the people next door arriving in the wee small hours. We were given out-of-date milk, but assured that it had been frozen and was okay. For the price we paid, we thought that in-date milk wouldn't be too much to ask for.
We paid $190, far too much for what it was. We stayed again a few nights later on our way home - we couldn't cancel the booking because we would have lost our money anyway. We were in a different room this time. It was clean and tidy, but the bathroom left a lot to be desired. The shower had very poor water pressure and the toilet seat was wobbly. The kitchen light was hard to find and there was a paving stone on top of one of the kitchen cabinets instead of a proper bench. Because it's porous, it's not hygienic.
While we were there, a man arrived to check in. He went into his room then came out, saying, 'I thought this was a nice place!' He left. It sums up how we feel about our stay there.
