5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Ours was a brief overnight stay to break our journey. The GH was in a very convenient location; 20 minutes from the airport and 200m from the N2. Our room was quite small but still very comfortable with a good shower. Very clean. Thomas and Elle are most welcoming hosts
