For what you get it is expensive. The rooms are quite basic but clean. The Restaurant is expensive too but the food was good and they did cater for Vegans, albeit a bit limited. The staff were very polite and made you feel welcome.

Hi. Being a typical non veg...i just glanced at the rest of the menu ! I do think there was a veg section. But te staff are so friendly & obliging- i think they would oblige if you could wait a bit or pre order.
