          Firstly want to give much respect to Bruce such an amazing guy.i loved the fact that the place is nice and quiet away from busy roads and loud noises, the ladies who clean the rooms do their job with a heart and soul to it.what can be improved is the gate I think if the gate is replaced with a remote controlled one it will be more safer rather than to park the car and open the gate manually the drive in and stop to close again. But overall love the place

          Signage leading to the place need to be put up. Travelling at night is a problem if you don't know the place. Also the strech of road leading to the entrance need to be kept .
