curtains were mildew-y, and the towels provided were stained. toilet light didn't work shortly after being fixed by reception, so we ended up having to shower in the dark. owners have a dog which is allowed to run around the property at times, so not the best for those who have allergies or are afraid of dogs.

Friendly, helpful staff. Upgraded to double room at no extra charge. Was given good advice on avoiding seasickness for my Albatross Encounter tour. Would definitely stay again, recommend to others.

No secure luggage storage - you can store your luggage in the common area at Lazy Shag or securely under lock and key at the I-Site for $2. Internet not free. Lots of flies in the kitchen due to the unclosed recycle/rubbish bins.

Nice place,a bit out of town from bus,only problem was noise from all the people from the stray tour bus talking outside at night. Very cheap single room with shower. I recommend.
