...I have to agree with some of the less enthusiastic reviews. This guest house has all the potential of becoming outstanding, but it is the attention to details that keeps it from fulfilling its potential: rooms are *almost* in great shape, *almost* spotless, staff is *almost* helpful (and that's when cricket isn't on... if it is, expect to be ignored), laundry is *almost* ready when you're already packing to check out, rooms are *almost* well-priced.
Note that location is not convenient for intensive sightseeing - this is a place to come and chillax, and not much else. Rooms are expensive for what you get (even in the low season), although the views are spectacular. The restaurant is a great place for meeting other travellers in the evenings, but is also priced like a tourists' venue, while across the river food is a 1/3 of what it costs here (of course there is no practical way to get across the river for dinner since the boat stops running at 6pm).
Know what you're getting and what it costs, accept the price for what it is, and you might have a good time here.
Watch for anything that may crawl up your toilet - I had a friendly frog hanging out in the water when I needed to use the bathroom at 2am.
