This place was reasonably priced for what you get. It's a short drive outside Simon's town. The room we had had a weird shower and loo built into the cupboards. So they were a bit cramped. Service was very friendly.

Everything was nice and the room was great. Comfortable nice bed to sleep on. The breakfast was also nice. We were received with a smile. Only thing i can say is maybe check if the tv channels are working because we couldnt watch tv and it was to late to ask the staff or owners.
