    We never went to breakfast toast & jam is not what we eat All products were in large jars empty out seem to be unhealth for food to be presented like this

    All products were in large jars empty out seem to be unhealth for food to be presented like this Owner walked into shower room and toilet with out knocking while he knew I was in there to check toilet papers supply with coffee in one hand. The photos seem to give the impression that the toilet and shower were part of the room this was not the case they were sheared with many other guests seem to be like a backpacker residence yet this was not conveyed to me on web site. The charged me a surcharge for not booking to nights. Yet I did contact you and advise you that I would be staying two nights. Had to ask for extra blankets they were old and ripped no soap towels were supplied I had to ask for towels. Toilet was never clean.

    It was perfect for one night. You have everything you need. The kitchen is huge and the staff was nice.

    It wasn't possible to close the window in the bathroom and it was cold.
