                              Friendly atmosphere, beautiful set up. Should raise the geyser temperature though, shower was barely lukewarm.

                              Beautifull lodge. Just struggled to find light switches in the dark! All situated in main room. Bathroom extremely small.

                              I am very happy that I chose Gecko Inn as my accommodation for my RB stay. Owner even went out of his was to pick me up and drop me off from the bus terminal. Staff are very friendly and helpful. This Inn can only be described as superb . I will be back

                              The location was accessible and central to where I needed to be. It was comfortable, the quality and the service of the place was tops. I really enjoyed myself.
