After a slew of soul-less business hotels I was thrilled to find this charming little hotel which is situated in a well tended tropical garden; there's a disproportionately large lawn to enjoy a sunset beer and if you are particularly tall you'll even be able to catch a glimpse of the lake.
The rooms are a little worn but have all the basic comforts including a hot shower and a comfortable bed. If you are travelling to/from the nearby airport it is worthwhile going for the $50 room (rather than the budget $40 option) as it includes a one way transfer; I made use of this service both times I visited and both times the courteous taxi driver was on time despite one early morning departure in the pouring rain.
Breakfast is better than I have had in many more expensive hotels with a great selection of fresh breads and a variety of eggs made to order; I had a very early airport transfer and had asked for something small for breakfast - to my delight someone made the effort to get up and prepare the entire spread for me. I also thoroughly enjoyed my stew the night before and the staff are happy to recommend things and generally helpful.
The restaurant is a pleasant open air affair and is a good place to park yourself with a laptop to make use of the free wifi. Overall a very pleasant stay!
