We were here overnight just to see the caves. The ensuite twin room was clean, had a small fridge & we could make tea & coffee. It was basic and compact but fine for one night. The walls were thin and some of the water pipes made loud noises. Fortunately it was quiet at night. The staff were very helpful and even tracked us down to return an earring my daughter lost at the nearby resturant!
