The establishment seems to be under new ownership and was getting a facelift (painting and other small repairs/upliftments) and looking very good. I especially liked the room I was in and breakfast area very modern, neat and clean.

Very Clean and spacious bedroom and bathroom. Lovely bed and bedding. Tv, bar fridge, microwave and kettle came in handy. Secure parking. Nice swimming pool area and gardens. Breakfast was ok but sufficient. Will definitely come back.

Check-in was simple, rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was decent. Loved the quiet neighborhood and kitchenette that had all the amenities. The only drawback was the low water pressure in the shower in the morning.

Hi Thank you for your kind review. We have looked into the water pressure in that shower and have added a pump to increase the flow. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Yasthil Maharaj
