Thank You for you kind words and lovely review.

The view from our room was lovely however only half the curtain could be opened to enjoy it. Service of the room was hit and miss - we were given 1 full bottle of water and one half (ie used by someone ) bottle when we arrived, this was replaced by 2 full bottles after 4 days in the unit. Coffee sachets and tea bags were provided, but sugar was allowed to run our - had to ask for more (only use 2 sachets each time we had coffee and tea). The on-site restaurant is Indian and serves beautiful food for dinner but our one attempt at breakfast was disastrous so gave that a miss for the rest of our stay. Book keeping was a mystery - was told that meals would be charged to our room and we would pay on check out - fair enough. Come checkout time none of our meals had been added; had to ask about payment for them!

I like the view from the balcony other than that it's old and needs total renovations

Spacious rooms, very comfortable beds, great views from the room and beautiful shady cool breeze to enjoy a cuppa in the morning and to relax at the end of the day.
