Liked: Location ideal, staff very helpfu l and considerate. Even better was breakfast included either occasional evening meal..the staff provides hourly to a few hourly tours .pay them what you feel they are worth buy how much you enjoyed it. A good psychological approach I say no added tax. It's a must to stay there.
