All was going well... clean rooms, good price etc until on our second night when it was freezing cold, the cleaning staff took the space heater from our room while we were out for the day claiming that we "used it too much" and refused to put it back in the room. We spent all day out of the hotel...

It is a pretty cool place with privacy in the rooms. The fire place in the bungalow is very nice. The restaurant is good and food has a very good price. The average is like 22 dollars. They have a very covenient parking and honestly hot water.

We were drenched from touring the local waterfall and the heater came in so handy to warm us and dry our clothes. Great pressure in the shower with really...
