Excellent outdoor amenities

Travellers are impressed by the outside facilities at this guest house.

Furthermore, the property's flourishing gardens receive high praise from guests.

Appealing rooms

Guests think the accommodations are spacious, tidy, and a good value for money. Because of these characteristics, visitors frequently say they would return and eagerly recommend the property to others.

Negative Reviews

A lack of soundproofing

Guests complain that it is too easy to hear fellow travellers or staff members moving about the property. One contributing issue is that the pools are close to the rooms, and the people swimming outside are not always considerate of those who might be trying to sleep.

Not enough on-site parking

Reviewers clarify that there are only a few on-site parking spots, and that the rest are not on the property. Travellers say there is a security guard who watches over the vehicles, but many still say that the overall parking situation is not ideal.

Breakfast is limited and not included

Guests aren't happy about breakfast not being served on weekends and say they wish they would have been told that before booking. They also are disappointed that the morning meal isn't part of the room rates. According to reviews, visitors would like to see this property provide a breakfast spread daily and without prior arrangement.
