Very good 8.0
It was very welcoming. Quite basic in amenities but that was all we required
Neil, gbTrip with friends
Very good 8.0
Very good.
The lady who operates this place was very nice and helpful. The room was nice, with a toilet and shower in room. Everything was clean and comfortable. The wifi did not work very well and was on the very slow side when it did work. I would book this place again as it was in a decent location and the experience there was very well. The breakfast in the morning was very, very good and the hostess made it herself. If you do decide to stay here and use google maps to get here, be warned it may direct you to the alley behind the property. It is in fact right across the street from the convenience store on the same corner. You can park in the lane off the main road or across the street.
