Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
A pleasant couple to stay with the room was adequate didn’t have anything spectacular but had what I needed. I stayed here by myself while training at a nearby MMA gym on a week long training camp and I was able to get enough rest to be able to complete that comfortably.

Don't drink the water in your bedroom. There was a glass on the counter so I assumed it was safe drinking water. I ended up getting arsenic poisoning due to the amount of Sulphur in the water. Lots of blood to paint a picture.

It was a close walk to the center of the city, host was very good about giving instructions on how to get to town. We had a shared bathroom, there was also an extra shower so if someone was using the toilet you could still shower. The room had a sink so you could wash your face and brush your teeth. Blackout curtains were OK, still let a lot of light in which can be an issue during the summer. Breakfast was fantastic!!
