Good vibe but needs tlc
I loved the vibe of the people in this place. However when we got there we noticed that the bathroom window was broken and an old plastic bag had been put over it. The door to the bathroom also wouldn’t shut up which meant you couldn’t stop the breeze from the broken window cooling the room down and being noisy. The mattress could also do with being replaced as the bed was very hard. I feel bad saying this because as I say the vibe of this place is lovely but the room was not comfortable and the spa look pretty dirty so we didn’t use it.
