Not at all good. The room is big but the facilities in there are just horrible. The Balcony door doesn't lock, the cupboard provided in the room never shuts we need to use paper to close the cupboard door. The Bathroom handle was broken and hurt every time we open from inside.. There was no latch to the main room...

We stayed here for one night only in order to go to world's end. Other than to sleep in the bed we didn't do anything else. The bed was too soft and we asked for extra blankets but the staff were really helpful and for £14 a night you can't complain. And the local friendly doctor who has been staying...

(+) This is a little guest house nestled high up on St. Andrew's road. Getting there is quite a climb, but it is away from the busy city and the area around Lake Gregory which can get very crowded especially over a long weekend. It is peaceful and clean and the staff are helpful. The food too (we only had...

I booked this hotel based on trip advisor review and I agree hotel had amazing view of mountains from its balcony. This hotel is located in the outskirt of city, approximately 5 kilometer from city center and road to hotel is very narrow with sharp turns making it risky business to reach the hotel by four wheeler.

The hotel is located in a serene location but the staff was rude and didn't bother us to help us much. We had requested to pack our breakfast and it was packed in a very unhygienic condition which we literally had to throw it away in the dustbins. Apart from that the sandwiches were stale. Had ordered coffee one night...
