          The rooms are nice and clean. Personel is very friendly and helpfull. Only negative point is that a construction site is right next to the guesthouse. Although to noise is not too much and only during the day.

          there is nothing negative to say, I can recommend this place without any restriction. Breakfast is excellent, beautiful veranda, helpful people, everything ist very well maintained. Footwalk to city center takes 12 minutes and is safe during daytime.

          Hi, Rivendell is around 2.5km from the NHTC, about a 5 minute drive. I would say it's a bit too far to walk, especially as the route crosses a few major roads.
