We stayed here as part of a tour for one night. The location is between the Golden a Rock and the last stopping point for the large trucks that ferry passengers the 45 minute journey to the rock. From the rock it's about 25 minutes downhill walk, so not good for anyone with walking difficulties. The hotel itself was clean and fine for a quick overnight stop. There is a separate shower area in the bathroom. Wifi is free and available in the lobby area. Breakfast is limited, eggs, bread and fruit but enough for what you need. There aren't many hotels in the area, so this is a good choice. Hopefully that is helpful, anymore questions, just ask.
