This place is old. You have to share a bathroom. The beds are terrible bad for your back and the bedding is old and worn. The staff tries but not even all the lights are working and the bathrooms makes noises. Even the couch is dirty.

The self catering unit we booked was just fine. Not great value for money though. Check in was a disaster as they lost the booking, luckily the unit was still available. Also no breakfast included in the price.

We stayed in a private room with its own bathroom, so it was pretty much just like being in a hotel. The "honesty bar" was a nice feature. You just take what you need from the fridge and check it off on a list and you pay up on your way out. Secure parking, pool, and relaxing common areas.

The guesthouse was clean, had a pool with water (!), a kitchen with enough storage, freindly and helpful staff. The room we had booked via booking.com was small, smaller and cheaper then the other rooms they offer, but good for a night. The bathroom was big the bed not the best.

Because of occupancy we stayed in the self-catering apartment, which was a bit more expensive than the rooms, but it also offered us a big deal more privacy. The rooms look nice with large window-slide-doors, but that was at the same time the only way in/out+daylight- & fresh-air source. Must feel a bit like living in a aquarium. So I...

I stayed here for a few days at the end of my 2 week self-drive around the country. After going for so long, it was a perfect place to chill poolside in the peace and quiet. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast amazing, and the staff is beyond accommodating. They were so awesome with every request I had, I cant...

A rather late review I'm afraid. I stayed here December 2015, but the menu doesn't let me pick a date that far back! This was a great little budget place. Safe, comfortable, clean and reasonably priced. I actually stayed twice because I felt so comfortable there. Great breakfast and kitchen too.
