We chose to stay at Five Islands because it was a convenient and well-priced choice to rest after driving all day. The room consisted of 1 bed and a TV. The sheets were clean which was my main concern. The bathroom was another story. I took a shower in my slides. There was a pile of rubbish/dirt in between the sink and the wall. The whole building stank of sewage and I am very glad I am glad that we paid extra for a private bathroom, I had a peek at the communal ones and they were pretty gross. Our room was really noisy due to the pub downstairs, loud music and yelling and cigarette smells. Luckily we only used the room to sleep and were well and truly out of there as soon as the sun came up...

Staff were pleasant, check-in was easy. Lots of stairs, tiny bit clean room. However… It was ridiculously hot and only had a ceiling fan that didn’t help much. Bathroom window was open but barred and bedroom window was nailed shut. If there had been a fire we’d have no hope. We were very glad we were only there for one night.

We were really disappointed in our stay as it was not advertised as shared bathroom facilities. We also didn’t have a place to park the car on the property and had to park up the road. The staff were friendly upon arrival.

Cheap and affordable, clean and tidy. Basic but that’s what I expected. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

Room was the size of a cell, bed was dirty full of hair, smelt bad, hot no aircon, no fly screen to keep mosquitoes out, shared bathrooms mouldy and dirty. Had to leave.

Not a hotel, it's a youth hostel. If you're over 30, avoid.
