hi there, thank you for your comments, the response by you is unwarranted. The long verbose essay tells people the kind of person you really are. It is knit picking and incorrect.

hi clive, yes ..we can accommodate your group of 15 ..2 family rooms of 4 each, and the remainder 7 in a dorm room ..can give you a reduced group discount. How does $18 pp sound. We can organise a shuttle for you, but not necessary as you have your car, and only the driver needs to pay to go back to the car, text me for further information on 0274-313-799. regards, ian
