We wellcome individual backpackers, couples , families and groups.There are a variety of rooms: dorm rooms, family rooms and some double or two bed rooms. Some of these are en-suite and there are showers for the other rooms which have hot water throughout the day.We have a self catering kitchen and dining room and a relaxing common room with an open fire and lots of books.
