A river runs through it. Unfortunately just upstream of the house a sewer empties into the river and the river bank is littered by garbage and muck. The gardener appears to have been on long leave, about twenty years, and has the garden an air of neglect. Nothing has been recently maintained, stairs are missing paving blocks, pool fittings corroded, but pool water clean.
The bedroom does not match the description. No bath just a shower with an online heater with electric fittings insulated with masking tape. Not very safe, but you also have to dodge the grunge and mould in the shower. Needs a good spring clean.
Felt claustrophobic with the burglar bars and the closed windows to keep out the stench.
Owner not available to discuss or resolve issues. Hapless staff unable to assist although they did their best.
Once asleep bed was comfortable.
Could possibly be an acceptable backpacker joint at $30 a night, but a ripoff at $100 a night.
Many of the guests were looking for alternative accommodation.
