Beds were very comfortable and lovely linen, big bathroom with lots of hanging space even over the bath, handy for wet gear and the only place we found this. Double suitcase shelf and fridge in room, i never use a mini bar so the absence of this makes it more convenient for checkout. Besides the shops across the road and...

The staff were not very helpful (grumpy) the (small) room hasn't bee altered since the...

We stayed here as part of a tour. Our room had immediate access to the lawn outside. Very close to all the restaurants and shops in town. Great breakfast. Front desk staff were very helpful. This town is a wonderful spot for a couple of days and nights.

We paid $130 for one night in a twin bedroom with bathroom. Honestly, I have been in many ensuit bedrooms in many backpackers for half the price that were exactly the same quality. It was not bad, just too overpriced for such a basic bedroom.
