Not having a tv in my room , was a turn off for me . I think it will be best if guests are advised to only come to the premises with off road cars.

2/10 Poor

A capming experience for a five star price!
Dirty bed sheet, third class furniture, non functional ancient age television, rotting food in the common fridge.. You get the idea. Its literally in the bushes.. You shouldn't be using a two wheel drive to get there. They should mention thisin the description. Maid was of pleasing nature, tried to be helpful. Owner/ manager was nowhere to be found. No concierge services at all. You are on your own. Also did I mention no locks on the doors and no safety guarantee. One of the toilets was non functional. Bath tub was not
