These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
Simply marvellous, nicely informativ about the wildlife could be seen around. Atmosphere of welcoming Really good food! hummmm Really kind people there
Rooms ok. Were busy with renovations when we were there. Didn`t eat in the Hotel. Found a beautiful seafood restaurant in the town. I think it was called Something Fishy? Cosy, well run and food was 10 out of 10. Had lunch and dinner there.
Accommodation was barely adequate. Shower didnt work.Service at breakfast was very , very poor, and the meal inedible. On the second day, there was an improvement, however. The charge of the accommodation was very excessive for what we got. I do not recommend this establishment.
