With dorm rooms, ensuite bathrooms, outdoor seating area, indoor dining area and a bar area to buy drinks/snacks travelers are well catered for. Water, breakfast and an evening meal...

Staff were very friendly and helpful and meals were of a great standard. Rooms were basic but clean and spacious. We took two boat trips...
