Comfortable but basic with very attentive service. Owner took my clothes out the dryer and put in the room. Great option if you are looking for a bed to sleep in between fishing sessions. Would use again for future fishing trips with the lads.

We were very happy with the place and accommodation. The owner was lovely and very helpful. Stayed 2 nights as a base for the Tongario Alpine Crossing walk and was easy drive to and back after a day of walking.
