About
Description
Situated minutes away from pubs, restaurants, movies & shops, Nomads is a friendly, homely spot run by Leigh & her team. After 15 years of being in business, they promise to provide efficient service in a welcoming More atmosphere. They will go out of their way to make you feel at home, help you with travel info & answer any other questions you might have. While you chilling around the pool or hanging out at the Bambooza Bar you'll more than likely make a bunch of new friends, experience some memorable moments and have fun. Nomads offer all the facilities you would expect, to suite every travelers needs. The bar, pool table and swimming pool are located in the original house whilst the two adjacent houses offer a quieter atmosphere with large, comfortable doubles and fans in all the rooms. Our Urban Brew restaurant offers meals with African and Indian theme nights to tempt your taste buds. Less
