Not filthy, but close”

We stayed in one of the cottages. It stinked of mold, mattrass was horrible, floor was completely dirty. There was no curtains on the kitchen window, which you can see the bed right through, so no privacy. Tea cups left for our use were dirty with dead insects and dust inside out. There is no wifi in the cottage, only in the common areas. But with vodacom we had full signal 4G in the cottage.
