Bin zufrieden. Parkplatz vorhanden und im Zimmer war ich alleine. Allerdings gibt es nichts zum versperren und die Zimmer sind wirklich klein. Küche dafür gross. Poolbilliard Tische komplett hinüber. Dusche schön heiss und ein kleiner Thermalpool ist inklusive. Zum Rosegarden und Gouverners Park ist es ca. 20 min. zu fuss. Gute Lage.

Agree with comments below: noisy (it seems like it's mandatory to have a least one junior rugby team staying) and amenities are a little tired. Simple private room very small and cell like. However atmosphere good and everything was clean.

A bit pricey considering the amenity is dated/1 of 3 door lock is broken/ 3 of 4 toilet paper boxes are broken/and without power point( if you need hair dryer), campsite become quite muddy during raining days. Will try to stay somewhere far from city, or just freedom camping.
