Nice location on quiet street but still close to restaurants, etc. Our room was spacious with separate kitchen and bathroom but it did need a bit of a refresh. Staff very friendly - lovely ladies. Wifi was poor / intermittent on most occasions. I would...More

Dear Guest, thank you for bringing these matters to our attention, however, we cannot do anything about mosquitos/flies that may occasionally want to come and visit hence the can of fly spray to deal with those situations, which can happen during heavy rain or hot...More
