Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Situated in a nice location, quiet, close to highway. The hosts are extra nice couple, staffs are friendly. The single rooms are a bit disappointed, with proper window or ventilation and there is no aircon. Otherwise, was nice to stay for the night as a stopover.
