    Amazing local gem

    Probably one of the best places I've ever been staying in terms of best guest service, the social mentality in the common area, and outstanding entertainment during the week. Not to forget that the surrounding peninsula area is beautiful and there are lots to see in this region. Would give this place my warmest recommendation to anyone - Thank you Freezer team!
