St tayed one night arriving late were welcomed, sorted for restaurant and a tour next day, very efficiently. It's difficult to review this balancing accommodation and our experience. would be lovely on warm sunny day, outdoor space and a pool area. Visited on a cool winter day - was cold and dark- ate early and got into bed ASAP to keep warm. Our double room was very comfortable aside from overwhelming smell of bacon cooked in kitchen next door late evening. So good in different circumstances?


We had a lovely time at the hostel - which was helped by the fact that we were unexpectedly upgraded to a beautiful double room. Part of our group stayed in the 'lodges' unfortunately the weather was most unkind as there was torrential rain - which resulted in a few leaks in the roof :( But staff were welcoming and friendly
