The room was very nice. Breakfast in the morning had plentiful items of all kinds, including for vegetarians. Swimming pool was good sized, although we didn't use it. Friendly and helpful staff. We would stay there again.

Very friendly helpful staff. Great choice at breakfast. Nice to eat outside too! We had the family apartment with kitchen facilities and childrens' beds in separate room from ours. The pool was icy cold, as is to be expected at this time of year! Obviously had to go in to prove to the kids I wasn't chicken. Free internet access...

Great stay! Really friendly. The rooms were clean and breakfast was tasted great. The staff were helpful with the continuation of our journey suggesting advice on the best way to do things. Everything provided and even sent my laptop charger that I forgot back to Australia.

We stayed here at the beginning of our roadtrip and also at the end. The staff is very friendly, we were lucky that the lady at the reception decided to wait a bit longer for us than 10 pm because it took quite a while in the airport. The first night we got a room in the building next to...

We stayed here before going home.It is more like a hostel than a guest lodge.Breakfast is served in a communal area - full of noisy teenagers.The cooked breakfast was very good however.The staff are friendly and accommodating.The rooms are grotty mould in the showers and damaged furniture - in definite need of a makeover

We had chalet G just for the one night after arriving from the airport and prior to setting off south. The place was conveniently located, the staff very friendly and helpful. The chalet had a dining/cooking area, a bedroom, bathroom and a lounging area outside. I would guess this was probably their best room and it was fine for us....

We only stayed 1 night at this address but our impression was good and they were also very willing in organizing a taxi from the airport and to and from Joe's Beerhouse (Restaurant). Good starting address for our holidays!
