  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Nice but not roomy.

The place is nice. The main building has a lodge feel to it that is not too rustic, with some modern feel. The room I think is too small. It’s mainly for sleeping and not for hanging around.
