Better to sleep on floor than on bed as it was not at all firm. Hurt our back and did not have enough sleep. When request to make up room, room was not vacuumed and hair in the bathroom was still on the floor. Coffee and tea was not refilled. Need to add lock on door for safety and security.

Conveniently located, hilly area and beautiful views. The property could do with a 'makeover', but nonetheless pleasant, helpful staff and comfortable enough for a few days.

Loved our stay here. The staff were very helpful and the common area was great for have my a take away meal or enjoying a drink at sunset. The. Jews were not too shabby either. My word of caution would be to the physically challenged if walking. The gradient upto the hotel is not the most comfortable. The proximity to the town was great though…

For a low-to-medium level hotel it’s a decent place as long as your expectations are not too high. It’s a dated facility but kept clean. Free parking and a short walk to town.
