The room locks are all defective. Kitchens are not so clean and the utensils provided are inadequate. The staff is friendly and efficient though. I had gone for a hike on 8th and on return I found that my shorts, towel and toilet kit had been thrown away and the room had been swept clean. I complained to reception and they asked the cleaning ladies but everyone denied any knowledge of my things. They were nothing expensive but still such a thing has never occurred to me anywhere else.
