Location is good but need to do bit maintenance
Shower pressure and room is ok, just have mosquitoes and sand flies in the room cant slept well while they are around noisy. Walking distance to Truman track and we even walked to Pancakes Rock. Toilet needs to upgrade bit shaky while sat down.

Lovely location as pictured. The room was adequate but a bit tired and panel heater struggled to keep warm in our winter stay. Communal full kitchen worked well.
