    Great location, nice premises for price. But small dog barked too much, room smelled of smoke, and the receptionist didn't book the shuttle as requested.

    Basic and clean accommodation

    The guest house is located conveniently right near the airport, approx. 10 min drive. As we started our tour with On the Go here we received a free airport shuttle pick up. There was a lady with a sign waiting to greet us at the arrival hall however if someone is not there to greet you, a simple phone call to the guest house will ensure they send a driver asap. The guest house is very clean simple accommodation. It has gardens with lots of tables to sit and chill in the sun and the shade and a cool treehouse style deck with a random enclosure with a squirrel. There is also enclosures with carrier pidgions which add to the quirkiness of the place. We arrived quite late from the airport and the girls at the front desk are all pretty relaxed and friendly. Our room was located across the road from the main building in their additional complex. While it an be a little odd at first being separated from the main building we all felt very safe. The complex is fenced and gated and all the doors and windows have bars and security doors so while you do get a slight Alcatraz vibe, it comforting to feel safe. The distance across the road from he main building is literally diagonal about 150 metres. It takes you about a minute to walk there. Some others have mentioned feeling unsafe at night we did not. Rooms were clean and basic but no hairdriers actually available. I would reccomend Doves Nest as a convenient and basic place to stay.

    People smoking within the building. The rooms were not what we had requested. The Guest house did not have the room we requested and took us to another place that was not to standard, and was dirty. The garbage bin was not emptied and flies were flying all over the room. The tea/coffee making area was equally not organised, we could not find a single spoon. The room telephone was not working and one had to walk across the road to reach reception. In general it was pathetic.
