From the moment we arrived we were disappointed. We arrived early and thought the place was closed everywhere was locked up. We finally found the owners round the side and were told to go away and come back later.( All we wanted was to see what facilities we had in the room).
We went to the park for a couple of hours then came back to the room with balcony and "landmark view". This was at the back of the auberge overlooking the "Indian village" some view!
The room itself was very amateurishly finished and the quality was dreadful.. The door stuck and was difficult to open, the bed was home made and squeaked horrendously when you sat down on it, never mind turn over. The walls are so thin that at 3.00 am, when the couple next door were getting up to go on the moose safari, we could hear every movement.
We went in to dinner the first night and were very disappointed with the selection available . We had onion rings between us and both had hamburgers and paid an extra $2 each for cheese and bacon which consisted of a cheese slice and two pieces of bacon an inch square. The bill came to over $45 with no drinks and the tip was automatically included without us being asked. Needless to say we didn't have breakfast the next morning and went elsewhere for other meals.
We found the staff very unfriendly and unhelpful and we really regretted having booked for three nights.
We have travelled extensively and this was one of our worst experiences.
