      The place was clean, showers were fine. TV is on its last legs. You get toast, tea and coffee included. We stayed in a double room (it also had a bunk).

      ... we headed back down to the lodge. We were absolutely starving after 8 hours of climbing already today, despite the fact it was only 10am! But we were rewarding with a lovely breakfast of toast, eggs, sausages, beans and mashed potato.
