It is a very difficult place to find....located on rough dirt roads in a rural area. Finding it at night took a couple hours.....the gps directed me via washed out roads.
I was billed incorrectly after departing and it took weeks and many messages to get the errors corrected.
The electricity went out several times while I was there. The internet only worked in the lobby area. The TV channel selection was highly limited and the TV set itself was very very small.
The bathroom lighting was nearly non existent. The furniture was dowdy. It has the feel of a grandmothers farm house from 1950.
Except for the constant sound of jets landing and departing from nearby Lanseria Airport.
Cleanliness was just ok. There was mold growing in the bathroom.
The staff was very agreeable. The food was OK (just).
The place was full up while I was there...but it felt like I was on an isolated farm.
The price seemed high compared to other guest houses near Lanseria.
